Special features regarding university sports
The university does not have its own sports programme. Some courses are free of charge, some subject to fees. On the Berlin campus, like-minded people can meet up through the sports working group. The working group organises cross-campus tournaments, rents halls or negotiates discounted sports offers. The interests range from football to basketball to cheer leading.
