Surrounded by greenery and a variety of sports and leisure facilities, there is one place for education, recreational and sports. Students get taught in a brand new, ultra-modern building in the Genneperparken in Eindhoven.

Interrelation between sport and education

The intelligence of Fontys Sports College is that most sports courts are located on the first floor. A brick roof sculpture, where the majority of the NOC * NSF certified sports facilities is located, floats above the transparent ground floor. An absolute highlight is the 15-meter high climbing tower as a beacon on the corner of the building.

Transparent sports area

A huge glass window offers a view on the climbers from a distance. In the heart of the school there is a transparent gym, which also serves as a landmark for the students.

The smart logistics creates maximum interrelationship between sport and education. You can look into the sports hall from the corridors, study areas, the restaurant and the entrance hall. Simultaneously, sports and education areas are split. The teaching areas are lockable, this allows sports clubs to use the gyms in the evening. The largest gym is split into three smaller rooms via soundproof partitions.
