The ACLO sports centre is founded in 1945 and is the biggest student sports organization of the Netherlands. Here, 19,000 students from the University of Groningen and the Hanze University Groningen can enjoy sport 15 hours a day, almost every day of the year. The ACLO is a place where you can join a wide variety of sports in a fun setting. Here you will find an alphabetical list of sports that are available.

ACLO Sports card

If you study at the University of Groningen, you can buy an ACLO Sports Card for only € 59,95 a year. If you stay less than six months, you can get a special International Students Sports Card for only € 49,95. Please ask your faculty or institution for a proof of enrolment and bring it to the Sports Centre to become an ACLO member.  If you did not receive your student card, you should bring your exchange acceptance letter and an ID card. Usually, you will then also be able to buy your ACLO sports card.
