A great way to get fit, boost your social life and meet new friends

If you study in Arnhem or the neighbouring Velp, you’ll have plenty of sports activities to choose from. Sports are the perfect way to give your health and social life a boost. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself sidled up to the gym’s bar enjoying a post-workout drink. ArtEZ, HAN and Van Hall Larenstein support dozens of sports initiatives throughout the city, meaning there’s always something active to do just around the corner. So there’s no excuse not to hit the gym for an hour or round up some fellow students for a game of football.


Student Sports Card

The Student Sports Card gives you unlimited access to a range of fitness activities for just €18.95 a month. You can work out, play squash, swim and sign up for various group classes at more than 40 gyms in Arnhem, Velp and the surrounding area. The price stays the same no matter how often you go.

The schools associated with Arnhem Study City make it possible for you to train as often as you like for a low monthly fee. Perfect, right?

  • Train as often as you like with the Student Sports Card to get fit and stay fit.

Indoor and outdoor sports facilities

Sports like volleyball, basketball and badminton are extremely popular among our international students. To make these sports accessible and affordable, you can train as often as you like at Sporthal Kermisland and other facilities with the Student Sports Card.  

If you feel like training with Dutch-speaking students, sign up for football, tennis or a workout session at the gym. You can work on your fitness rain or shine, and maintain an active social life at the same time, both on and off the court.

  • No more excuses not to exercise!

Elite sport in Arnhem

Arnhem is a frontrunner in the field of sports. We have the ultra-modern Gelredome stadium, home of the Vitesse football club, which hosts exciting matches on a weekly basis. We also have the Papendal sports centre for top-level sports. Nearly 400 elite athletes use its facilities every day, from BMXers and gymnasts to footballers and golfers.

If you’re more of a sports fan than an athlete, there’s also plenty to do. Go to a Vitessa football match with friends or see how elite athletes train at Papendal during a guided tour.
