Effective immediately and until 30 September 2020, the University will give sports courses online, through Webex. Participants are welcome to sign up for multiple courses.

Once you have signed up for a course, you will receive a link to the WebEx-sports room!


As a student at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, you can take part in the University’s sports programme without prior experience and without registering – free of charge. You can find an overview of all training times in the weekly plan.

The sports hall and gym are located in Esslingen, in Flandernstrassse 101. The doors leading to the carpark building are open between 6:30 – 22:00.  Football and basketball courts are to be found on the roof of the Flandernstrasse carpark – use them to practise your kicking and basketball skills. On the Flandernstrasse Campus, there is also a weights room open for daily, independent use. To comply with insurance regulations, all users of the weights room have to take a one-hour introductory course (always Mondays) and training is only allowed in groups of at least two people.

If you join a volleyball, football or basketball team at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, you can pit your skills against teams from other universities through the German Association of Universities. We let you know about the dates for competitions and events on the sports notice boards and on our website.  

If you have any questions, Annika Pfiz can help.
