Sports and Examination Centre

A circular sports building on the campus square
Good sports facilities are indispensable on a university campus. The new Sports and Examination Centre will arise at the place where the current rugby field is located. The new building will be 1.5 times bigger than the current University Sports Centre.


The existing sport facilities will be expanded with considerably more square meters. In addition there will be extra space for examinations. The sports centre is centrally located and will have a prominent place on the Campus Square, near the current rugby field.

The current building can no longer cope with the growth of the now more than 10,700 athletes. Students like to make use of the wide range of sports offered by the USC. In addition, the USC plays a social role for many international students, especially from Friday evening to Sunday. It is expected that the larger USC will attract other users of the park to come and play sports in addition to students.

The sports centre is also the main examination facility. However, due to the increased demand for both sports and exam space, these two are now in each other's way. In the new building, all exams can be facilitated.
