Guest researchers may be entitled to access the facilities by acquiring a guest card (“Gästekarte”) if they don't possess an Athena Card.
Many sports are free of charge but a registration is required. Registration for ALL courses (free of charge as well as for payment) is to be done on-line or in the USZ.
Proof of eligibility is checked regularly, therefore please always carry your authorization and photo ID with you.
There is limited hall capacity! If one of the gyms is too full, the USZ staff is authorised to close the halls and to prevent the entry of new participants.
More details on participation regulations and booking terms are available on the website of the USZ.
The mandatory registration for all courses is necessary to document our work for the university's management and various partners. It gives us important information about course workloads and helps us to respond quickly and appropriately to trends.
In addition it provides you, as a participant, many advantages. We can inform you quickly and easily about hall closures, course cancellations, hindrance or sickness of exercise guides. Openings in the course places can again immediately assigned to you and courses that are cancelled due to lack of demand, can be replaced with more offerings of high demand courses.
