Also the real competition animals will definitely get their money at the VUB.
Student teams can register for a semesterlong indoor football competition "the Student Futsal League" on the Etterbeek and Jette campus.
The student circles then compete each other on Wednesday afternoons in the Sports trophy and the best (top) athletes can then defend the colors of the university outside of their own campus limits at numerous Flemish / Belgian student championships.

On a regular basis, the sports department also organizes specific "health" campaigns to sensitize the students in a playful manner and to convince them to choose a healthy (er) lifestyle.

Being sportive is also worth money at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel because you can request a financial intervention on the purchase of your sports subscription or receive subsidies for the organization of a sporting event.

Studeer je niet vet!

The fatter students become, the fewer points they get at the university. This is shown by a recent study by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. When young people go to university, they can gain upto six kilograms in a few years, because they barely eat vegetables, drink a lot of alcohol and do little exercise. Moreover, these students are also getting worse points.
The VUB sports department calls the alarm bell and organizes the campaign 'Studeer je niet vet!, to sensitize students and convince them to choose for a healthier lifestyle.
To do this, the sports department goes from campus to campus with a group of students from the Fitness and Health department who question students and invite them for a free fitness check (health check).
Some of these students are subsequently followed up by a personal health coach.

Do you want more information about this campaign? Feel free to contact the sports department of the VUB (sport@vub.be) or visit our reception in building L on campus Etterbeek.

Sport je slim!

Most people do sports for the following good reasons: physical activity is a physical, psychological and social benefactor! Scientific research has even shown that we are even smarter! Sports is not only good for your physical health but also for your mind.

Because of exercise, blood and therefore oxygen is sent to the hippocampus (part of the brain that is responsible for learning and memory). This creates new connections between the brain cells and the more connections, the more knowledge and the smarter we become! Increased productivity, a positive self-esteem, a better learning ability and memory, more focus and self-confidence! So pull on your workout gear quickly, because these 6 benefits for your head are all scientifically proven. So: Let's get smart and let's have fun!

Ai, no time to do sports, you say? Are you currently studying hard for the exams? No worries ... the only thing you need for a successful, relaxing sports workout is the following:     

  • wifi to view our 7 minute workout     
  • a wall, a chair and a bottle of water
