Welcome to the virtual tour through the different areas and offers of the Center for Academic Sports at the University of Potsdam. Under the following links you will find detailed information and impressions of our wide range of offers. You have the possibility to inform yourself about our current courses, you can go on a virtual tour through our sports facilities or you can watch videos and impressions of our various sports events.

If you have any questions that can't be answered in the FAQs, you can always ask us on Facebook or Instagram. Write us your questions via the social channels and we will try to answer them as quickly as possible.

If you are interested in one of our sports classes, you can enrol online or in our office within our opening hours. We offer four programmes during the year, two each semester:

  • Winter Semester: end of Oct until start of Feb (around 13-14 weeks)
  • Winter Semester Holidays: end of Feb until mid of April (around 6-7 weeks)
  • Summer Semester: end of April until mid of July (around 13-14 weeks)
  • Summer Semester Holidays: start of Aug or Sept until start of Oct (around 6-10 weeks)

The participation fee for a certain class entitles you to visit this class for the whole programme duration. For example: You registered for volleyball in the winter semester on Mondays? You visit the same class every Monday for 14 weeks.
