Programme and courses

For each semester, the GZ offers university students an extensive and varied health-oriented sports programme. The programme consists mainly of weekly leisure sports events as well as workshops and sport holidays. The GZ aims to encourage health and offers the possibility of learning different types of sports and discovering diverse training possibilities, as well as providing active relaxation, pleasure and rest.

The GZ is a part of the occupational preventive health management scheme, which includes staff health management and student health management. Both areas are currently under development at Leipzig University.

Participation in the sports programme and health management programmes at the GZ at Leipzig University is open to all enrolled students and staff at Leipzig University, Leipzig Academy of Fine Arts (HGB) and the University of Music and Theater Leipzig (HfMT). Due to contracts concluded between the university and the MPI Leipzig, staff working there can also participate in courses at the GZ under certain conditions. Please consult the GZ for further information. Sports which are not offered at Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HTWK) can be attended by the students of this institution at the university, as long as there are enough vacancies. In order to check eligibility for participation, student or service cards (or comparable documents) and the participation ticket must be brought to every event and shown upon request. Unauthorised individuals will be considered to be staying in the sports locations illegally.
