You can find more information here.

  • How does a sports card work?

You only have to purchase this sports card once and then you can extend it every year. For TU/e students and - employees the Campus card functions as a sports card. Every time you come to the SSC, you have to scan your sports card at the entrance. You can find more info about the sports card here

For the same price* partners can participate in the same programs and make use of the same facilities. When purchasing the sports card, please come both to the SSC info counter and bring some proof of partnership (e.g. marriage certificate, shared bank account, shared mortgage etc.) when buying the sports card. NB: a partner cannot buy a sports card when the (potential) sports card holder doesn't have a valid subscription.

When you have graduated, you can exercise at the SSC one extra academic year for the student price after getting your diploma.

For TU/e and Fontys Alumni, who have been graduated for more than an academic year, we have a special Alumni arrangement. You find the prices here.
