Sports facilities overview

The sports facilities in focus

Our three-field multi-purpose hall (30m x 15m per field) was built in the late 70s and is the home for all indoor sports of the IfSS. Due to the possible 1/3 separability by folding walls, a flexible execution of the sports is guaranteed. In addition to teaching, college sports classes are held in Hall 1. The home games of the KIT SC indoor sports, first and foremost the KIT SC Gequos regional league basketball team, are also played here. In 2019, the hall floor was completely renovated.
Our new hall (built in 2011) offers state-of-the-art conditions in each of its three hall sections. Whether with the walk-in health center, the two spacious gymnasium sections, each measuring 23 m x 15 m, or the state-of-the-art, electrically adjustable climbing wall, there is something here for every user. In addition to teaching events, Hall 2 is also used for university sports courses. KIT SC also uses this hall with its volleyball teams.
