Rates Leiden and The Hague
The USC has three locations, both in Leiden and The Hague. We use an all-in subscription, this gives all members access to all our locations in Leiden and The Hague. You can also swim in Leiden and The Hague during fixed 'student swimming' hours at 6 swimming pools.
Free inspiration pass
Would you like to see what the USC is all about? With an inspiration pass you can try out everything one day free of charge. Participate in our group lessons, training courses of our student sports associations or come workout in our gym. You can even try out several things. For example, 1 hour of fitness and 2 group lessons, as long as it is on the same day! Keep in mind that you have to register for all activities, so be on time. Create an account, without obligation, and the staff at the front office will help you out further. Please note, this inspiration pass cannot be used to reserve sport halls/fields, tennis courts, courses or swimming pool visits.
Would you like to join Hockeyclub Thor, LVV Leicrosse, Football Factory, Panic Frisbee, Aquamania or LSRG? These associations have a separate contract with the USC regarding contributions. Before purchasing a sports subscription, first inquire with the relevant association what these agreements are.
Individual Choices Model
Leiden University staff members are eligible for an allowance for their annual gym membership. This allowance does not cover all the expenses, but the use of gross income means you benefit from a tax advantage. Read on for more information.
