University Sport to Suspend Operations – Sports Facilities Closed – Running Tracks Remain Open

October 30th, 2020 | by

Due to the recent surge in incidences of COVID-19 in Aachen and the region and the new regulations put in place by the respective authorities, further measures are being implemented to contain the spread of coronavirus and to ease the burden on the health care system. All sports operations, including subscription operations, sports facility rental and leasing will be discontinued as of Monday, November 2, 2020. All offers of the University Sports Center (HSZ) are affected without exception, regardless of whether they take place in university, municipal or external partner facilities.

The running tracks on Königshügel, including the Finnbahn track,  will remain open for the time being. Please note that according to the Coronavirus Protection Ordinance, only a maximum of two people may train together.

“We very much regret that we have to suspend all sports activities at RWTH and close our sports facilities. We very much hope that we will be able to resume our sports programs in December,” said Peter Lynen, head of Aachen University Sports. All sports halls, the cage football facilities, the all-weather pitch, the natural grass pitch, the outdoor fitness facilities, the RWTH gym, the sauna, as well as the changing rooms and sanitary facilities will be closed.

The date for resuming operations and the start of registration for the 2020/21 winter semester will depend on future developments and will be communicated on the HSZ website at short notice. In November, the service point can only be reached by telephone, e-mail or by arrangement.

These measures are based on the ordinances of the Federal Ministry of Health, the regulations of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, and those put in place by the crisis management teams of RWTH Aachen University and the Städteregion Aachen.
