Welcome to KLU Sports!

KLU is an official “partner university of high performance sport” represented by the Olympiastützpunkt Hamburg/Schleswig Holstein (Olympic base) and the Allgemeiner Deutscher Hochschulsport Verband (German University Sports Federation).

In the context of this cooperation, we have implemented a scholarship program for German national team athletes, as well as a discount program for Bundesliga athletes (or an equivalent) in various sports.

Furthermore, KLU supports sport activities, such as being a member of the University Sport Service Hamburg (Hochschulsport Hamburg). Among other things KLU brings people together by organizing teams in different sports, through participating in university championships for example, and by organizing events with our own dragon boat.

At KLU it's like hockey: everyone knows and supports everyone. That helps me enormously in my studies. I also have an international outlook and the right network for my professional career.

Thanks to the KLU scholarship program for top athletes, I have optimal conditions to combine my professional and athletic career at the best level.

Marie Jeltsch, BSc Business Administration

For me, a familiar atmosphere and team spirit are very important. I feel both at KLU as well as in the UHC. I also appreciate the high level of internationality on campus.

I don’t think you’ll find the combination of top-level sports and excellent education that is provided here at any other German university.

KLU Dragon Boat

In 2018 we celebrated the christening and the maiden voyage of our own KLU Dragon Boat, which was gratefully donated to KLU by the Pollmann Stiftung, a foundation promoting water sports in Hamburg.

The dragon boat is named ONE FOR ALL, because it is a boat for everybody. With this boat, our very international student body has the possibility to network and paddle not only with other students, but also with staff and professors on some of the most beautiful inner-city waters in the world – the Alster.
