Extension of temporary suspension of the Sport Operations of the RWTH
Aachen University Sports Center (HSZ)

Due to the current developments around the spread of the Corona virus, as well as
the recommendations of the relevant authorities, RWTH Aachen University is
unfortunately forced to take further steps to contain the spread of the virus and help
relieve the health services. Our aim thereby is to halt or at least slow the further
spread of the virus as far as possible.

Consequently, the sport operations, subscription-based operations and rental and
provision of sports facilities has been suspended since Saturday, March 03, 2020,
to May 10, 2020. This applies without exception to all offers and programs of the
University Sports Center, whether they take place in university facilities, city
facilities or those of external partners.

This includes the closure of all sports halls, the tennis courts, the beach sport and
cage-soccer facilities, the water sport facility Wildenhof, the RWTH Gym and the
Sauna, regardless of their sporting use and including the changing rooms and
sanitary facilities.

The date of resumption of operations is dependent on future developments and will
be communicated at short notice at the HSZ website. Please
note, that the Service Point can currently only be contacted by phone, email or by
prior arrangement. From April 6 to April 17 2020 the Service Point is entirely
closed.

Additionally, it has been decided that the RWTH Campuslauf on April 24, 2020, will
not take place.

These measures follow the recommendations of the Federal Ministry of Health, the
Robert-Koch-Institute and the stipulations of the Federal State of North Rhine-
Westphalia and crisis unit of the Städteregion Aachen.

The rectorate is aware that these measures will lead to a restriction of university
life. It considers them necessary, however, and apologizes for the inconvenience
and asks for your support.

Further up-to-date information on the approach of university administration can be
found on the website of the university.
