Welcome to the
University SPORTS Institute!

In lieu of current developments regarding the SARS-CoV-2 virus ("Coronavirus"), courses offered by the University Sports Institute will be suspended beginning March 11, 2020, until further notice.

We offer attractive sports and recreational classes to JKU students and faculty members, as well as to employees at other universities and univerisites of applied sciences. Adults age 18+, graduating high school seniors and university alumni can also take courses. Our courses not only focus on sports and activities but also a movement at the JKU toward stronger communication and a healthy lifestyle.
We not only offer "conventional sports classes" - you will also find many contemporary, health-oriented style courses.

Our fitness studio (with strength-training and cardio equipment) is located at the StudentCenter Raab, Julius-Raab-Str. 10. The entrance is located to the left of the USI Office and after registration, the studio is available for independent use during the semester.

In addition to courses held by expert instructors, we also organize a series of competitions for various levels of performance.

Also, we aim to be an active part of Austrian Student Championships and certain international student sporting events up to World Championships and University Championships so if you are a professional or competitive athlete, please contact the USI Office.

Our door is always open for comments, suggestions, course suggestions, etc.  ...... Either walk-in or make an appointment in advance to talk with the head of the USI Office.
