(University) Sport

University sports

The university sports program takes place together with the PH Weingarten and is organized by the PH. On the PH sports grounds with indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, gymnastics hall, tennis courts and stadium behind the RWU main building, in the so-called Töbele, the general university sports take place from Monday - Thursday, 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm.

The offers range from A for aerobics to soccer, karate, swimming and V for volleyball. The exercise instructors are students themselves and about 40% of the students at the two universities take advantage of the free offer. The university sports start about 2 weeks after the RWU lectures begin, because the PH always starts later than the RWU with the lectures.

All information and current courses can be found on the PH website of the department Sports.
