18. What about sports and exercise opportunities at the FU and beyond?

The FU offers a broad assortment of intramural sports activities for which you would be eligible to register, but you need to keep in mind that the U.S.-style semester schedule used by FU-BEST does not really coincide with the standard German semester calendar as used by the FU. The FU does not have the kind of exercise/recreational sports facility common to most U.S. colleges and universities. However, the Lankwitz Campus also offers a Kraftklub (Fitness Studio) option you could purchase (18 € for one month, 14 € per month when signing up for 3 months, and 10 € per month when signing up for 6 months). There are also a number of public swimming pools in the city, both indoor and open-air. Furthermore, joggers will enjoy Berlin’s many parks and the forests located on its outskirts.
