Students of the following institutions:

are insured against accidents within the framework of university sport.
However, the insurance cover only applies to bodily injuries. Material damage (e.g. glasses or similar) is excluded.
Not included in the insurance cover is the free sporting activity outside the organised training activities of the Institute of Sports (e.g. free play groups, free exercise, free tennis, individual training in the fitness and strength studio). In the case of courses run by other organisers which are only taught by university sports, the participants themselves are responsible for their own insurance cover. It is therefore advisable to take out accident, health and luggage insurance and travel or course cancellation insurance. Furthermore, it is recommended that all participants in university sports take out private liability insurance to cover claims for personal injury or property damage caused by third parties.
