Students staying active
The TU Clausthal sports center offers opportunities to take part in more than 70 sports. You can also take sports science classes in the sports and technology part of the computer science master’s program, the sports engineering bachelor’s program, and the mechanical engineering degree program with a focus on biomechanics.
Alongside the university’s numerous indoor sports, the Harz Mountains offer a particularly appealing setting for a wide range of outdoor activities. In winter, students can enjoy cross-country and downhill skiing as well as snowboarding. You can also try a biathlon. In summer, cross-country running, climbing, mountain biking, sailing, and whitewater kayaking are available, as are tennis, beach volleyball, and hiking. The TU boathouse, idyllically located on the Okerstausee, rents out boats as well as equipment for windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, and much more.
In the summer semester, soccer fans can enjoy the TUC soccer league. Other athletic highlights are the annual Clausthal campus run and the summer sportsfest, as well as internal university championships. University sports instructors can also attend a course on general sports theory, which is recognized by the Goslar sports confederation as part of the “C” instructor-training program for recreational sports.
