Course Cancellation and Withdrawal

Registration fees vary according to the type of athletic activity offered by the University Sports Service (Hochschulsport, or HSP for short). The respective fee amount can be found on the HSP website under the description of the corresponding course or activity. The payment of the registration fee can only be made via bank transfer to the specified account of the University of Tübingen.



There is generally no guarantee that all courses and activities offered by the HSP or each individual session thereof will actually take place. A course session can specifically be cancelled:

  • if it falls on a public holiday
  • as a result of unpredicted circumstances
  • when the designated sports facilities are reserved for teaching and researching purposes, national university championships or other major events
  • when the course instructor is unable to oversee a training and the HSP organisers cannot found a suitable replacement on short notice
  • in case of operational disruptions such as maintenance work, planned construction measures etc.

Moreover, the HSP organizers are allowed to fuse different courses together or cancel them entirely when the minimum amount of participants has not been reached.

You will find all the relevant information on the current courses and activities, changes of schedule and general announcements either on the noticeboards in front of the sports halls in Wilhelmstraße and Alberstraße or on the HSP website  www.hsp.uni-tuebingen.de.

If you wish to withdraw your registration, you will be charged with a fixed processing fee of €5,00.
