Whether you want to be active or simply relax in a café with friends, there are many opportunities and options for spending your leisure time.
Further, each institution has a network of associations that bring students together for academic activities, sports and recreation. All of these associations are run by students, and some of them are internationally oriented. Two of the larger international student associations are AIESEC and the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).
If you want to keep fit, then choose one of the sports courses offered by the university sports department (USI). Whether you want to try out something new, like Zumba, or just go running with other students, you will meet other new students and potentially make new friends.
