29/05 New lockers temporarily out of order
Recently, new lockers have been installed and you could use them from last week. However, some technical problems have emerged during these first weeks, which sometimes limit their use. Because of this we have decided to put the new lockers temporarily out of order to settle the problems.
New lockers in use!
In Unit Sports you can now use the new lockers. You can open them by using your campus card or your ‘OV chip card’ (public transport). In addition, it is also possible to use the lockers by entering a pin code.
16/05: New lockers available and old lockers out of use
From Wednesday 16 May, new lockers can be used in the Unit Sports in the hallway next to Hall 1. Until then, you can still use the old lockers. Note: do you still have stuff in one of the old lockers? Make sure you have emptied it before 16 May, because the lockers will be removed after this date.
01/05: between 06:00-08:00 no power at the Unit Sports
On Tuesday 1 May from 6:00 to 8:00, some facilities at the Unit Sports won’t have electricity.
About the projectOver the past years the number of visitors of Sports & Culture has grown up to 1.2 million visitors per year. In order to be able to continue to provide a high-quality offer, the available surface of Sports & Culture will be increased from 10.000 to 14.000 square meters. Read more about the project.
Health and safety first!
Health and safety are very important at Sports & Culture. In places where people work out hard and play sports, good hygiene and the prevention of bacterial growth are of vital importance. Recently the new shower and changing rooms have been put into use at Sports & Culture. In the interest of preventing legionella, a pasteurization-system has been installed in the water installations; an innovative system that is used throughout the university.
From outdoor pool to indoor changing room
We are standing in one of the new changing rooms. In the old situation, this space was an outdoor area between two existing buildings. Just before the summer the construction started. Shortly after that we had some heavy rain and the site looked more like a swimming pool than a construction site. Luckily it all worked out well in the end.
