Current information

Due to the current corona protection regulation, university sports can still take place on site (on a limited basis).

Since 16.01.2022 the following regulation is valid for all offers of the university sport:
Only immunized persons may participate in outdoor offers (2G).
Only immunized and additionally tested persons may participate in indoor offers (2G+). Proof of testing is not required for participants with booster vaccination (see below for details).

Proof of immunization and testing or booster vaccination may be provided as follows:

(1) Proof of valid immunization (at least 14 days after last required vaccination) OR.
(2) Proof of a positive PCR test (min. 28 days, max. 6 months old)
(3) RUB students who show their immunization by displaying the RUB green vignette on their student ID card may also participate in the course.
(4) In addition, an official identification document must be carried to each course date.
(5) Tested individuals are those who have a negative result from a rapid antigen test performed no more than 24 hours ago or a PCR test performed no more than 48 hours ago.
(6) All participants who meet one of the following conditions are considered "boostered" or equivalently immunized:

  1. Your certificate shows "Immunization 3 of 3." According to the regulation, this applies to all vaccines recognized by the Paul Ehrlich Institute, including Johnson & Johnson.
  2. You have been vaccinated and recovered at least 1x. The order is irrelevant. The important thing is that you show both with a recognized proof.
  3. Your certificate shows "vaccination 2 of 2" and your second vaccination is more than 14 and less than 90 days ago.
  4. You have recovered and your PCR test is more than 27 and less than 90 days ago.

All other participants must still bring a test certificate for the time being.

Welcome to University Sports Bochum

In the winter semester, you can once again choose from over 60 different sports and almost 200 courses (in person and online). Unifit, our fitness studio with over 1,100 square metres of training space in the city centre, has also significantly extended its opening hours again. We are also the first point of contact for all those who aspire to take part in university competitions and, at the RUB as a partner university of top-class sport, we support top-class athletes in reconciling their studies and sport.


Even in these special days we offer best conditions for a health-promoting and effective training: With Unifit, university sports runs a 1,100 square metre, high-quality fitness studio right in the city centre, where members of the RUB and the cooperating partner universities in Bochum can train individually.
