Learning Spaces at the sports centre
You can also study at the University Sports Centre.
It is possible to rent one or more sports halls within the USC in order to organise sports events or other UM related events.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Be aware: all rental requests need to be approved by UM SPORTS. You will receive a decision within 5 working days.
If you want to take photo's or video's at the University Sport Centre, you have to get permission beforehand.
This is how you send in a request:
1. Send an email to email@example.com with a plan/script/subject on when you want to film/photograph, who is being filmed/photographed, where you want to film/photograph, what you plan to do with the footage and on what platforms the footage will be spread.
2. This request will be sent to the communications officer and Facilities UM SPORTS to be approved.
If the request is approved:
3. On the day of filming/photographing you report at the front desk. When in doubt the front desk will always call the communications officer or someone from Facilities. After that, if necessary, the front desk will give you guest passes for the film crew so you can go through the gates.
4. The film crew must always ask permission and, where possible, a signature from all individuals on film. For this, the film crew needs permission forms. These consent forms can be requested at the UM SPORTS front desk.
5. The material must always be shown to the UM SPORTS communications officer before publication.
Pay attention: Only a communications officer or Facilities UM SPORTS can grant permission for a request.
UM Sports Café
The USC stands for sports, studying and sharing time. Therefore, the USC hosts a Sports cafe where you can sit down with some friends after a game or a workout and enjoy a cup of coffee, smoothie or a nice sandwich. The Sports Café is open for everyone, whether you are a UM SPORTS member or not.
Smoking ban on UM premises
Since 1 August 2020, smoking is no longer permitted on the campuses of educational institutions (universities of applied sciences/HBO and research universities/WO). UM finds it important to provide a healthy working and learning environment and embraces the smoke-free university. Therefore, all areas of UM, including the University Sports Centre, have been smoke-free since 1 August 2020. This measure applies to everyone—students, employees, visitors and suppliers. The smoking ban applies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to all smoking and tobacco products (including e-smokers). The boundaries of the non-smoking areas (including courtyards) are clearly indicated with signs and demarcations on the pavement.
Gender neutral bathrooms and showers
The University Sports Centre has gender neutral bathrooms and showers.
