USC Closed from 13 March to 28 April

As you might have guessed based on the measures taken by the Dutch government, the USC will be closed until at least 28 April.

The USC misses its athletes and you probably miss working out at the USC. You will receive an e-mail from us on what will happen to your membership. This is not a decision the USC can make on it's own, the Executive Board (College van Bestuur) of Leiden University has to make it. The CvB is still hard at work to make sure that education and research can be done remotely for the rest of the study year. We hope for your understanding and patience for this exceptional situation.

Not doing anything while at home? Not necessary at all! We offer an extensive online sports program on our channels. Our teachers also work from home (as far as possible) and do their utmost to keep you in shape. Many athletes have been able to take a look in the living rooms of yoga teachers Aurora and Lisa and dance teacher Carla.

Do you have a work out suggestion, mail us at

And in the mean time: Stay healthy and stay safe!

On behalf of the management of the University Sports Centre

Esther Deutekom, Director USC

  • Let’s RUN (alone)!

    At the moment, we are looking for alternatives to hitting the gym. RUNNING is probably the most obvious one. However, you might encounter difficulties motivating yourself to go out running or you feel like you simply do not enjoy it (that’s why you usually go to the gym after all, right?)

  • Wrap It Up!

    Sometimes things go a little different in a day then you’ve planned for. Like today, I just got too caught up going back and forth between my own work and helping the kids with their homework. By the time I was done it was already past lunch time and I was HUNGRY!
