Sports for University Employees
Welcome to the University Sports Centre, where Leiden University employees can prioritize their health and well-being by engaging in sports activities at a discounted employee rate. Whether your aim is to improve your fitness, join our group classes, or work towards a healthier lifestyle, you've come to the right place at USC Leiden!
As a Leiden University employee you have access to all USC facilities at a reduced rate. Through the Employment Individual Choices Model, you can also use your gross salary to pay your sports membership. You will not be taxed on this part of your salary. This can result in a potential tax benefit of approximately €120,- depending on your gross salary. For more information about the Employment Individual Choices Model, please visit the employee website.
