Sports near your studies in Leiden or The Hague
The University Sports Centre has been the sports hub for students in Leiden for over 50 years, and now also in The Hague. From dawn till dusk you can take part in a wide range of sporting activities. A significant advantage is that as a student of Leiden University, you pay much less than you would for a membership at a regular sports school.
GYM FACILITIES AT THREE LOCATIONS
Our all-in membership grants you access to our three gyms where you can work on your fitness and strength: the ‘USC’ on Einsteinweg, ‘Plex-Fit’ in Plexus located right in the heart of Leiden and 'The Buzz' in The Hague. They all have a wide range of cardio and strength training equipment as well as professional trainers who are on hand to offer free advice.
MORE THAN 55 SPORTS + FREE SWIMMING
As well as our excellent gym facilities we also offer lessons in more than 55 different sports: from ballet to self defence sports, from yoga to spinning and from pole fitness to boxing. And there’s more. You can also swim for free at the Combibad De Vliet and De Zijl pools in Leiden and Overbosch, Houtzagerij, Hofbad and Zuiderpark in The Hague during designated times.
BOOKING SPORTS FIELDS AND HALLS
Members of the USC can reserve fields or sports halls for free and practice sports without the supervision of a teacher or association.

LUSV Badminton, LUSV Basketball, Thor (hockey), Leicrosse (lacrosse), Qravel (tennis), LSRG (rugby), Football Factory (football), Leidance (dance), SKC (volleyball) and Aquamania (water polo and swimming).
