HG- or RUG-student
If you are a full-time or part-time student at the University of Groningen (RUG) or Hanzehogeschool Groningen (HG), you can buy an ACLO Card for € 59,95. This can be done via internet (iDEAL), when you have a Dutch bank account, or by going to the front desk of the Sports Center or of ACLO Station. You must bring your student card or certificate of registration to purchase an ACLO Card.
Throughout the year you can buy an ACLO Card. The validity of this is always per academic year, so from August the 14th 2017 till September the 1st 2018, regardless of when you purchase your ACLO Card.
The ACLO has different prices from the 1st of February and the 1st of May. From February on, you can buy the Midseason Card which costs €49,95. From May on, you can buy the Summer Card which costs €24,95. Both cards are valid till the first of September and are not valid for members of our sport associations.
If you are an exchange student and only in Groningen for one semester you can buy an ACLO Card for a reduced fee. If you are here for one semester the price of a ACLO Card is €49,95. You can only buy a reduced fee ACLO Card at the information desk of the Sportscentre (ACLO) or at ACLO Station. For the first semester you can purchase an Exchange Student Card and for the second semester you can purchase a Midseason Card. Make sure you bring (a copy of) your letter of registration of your school so that you can prove that you are only here for one semester. It is not possible to join an ACLO student sports club with an Exchange Student Card. To join a student sports club, you have to buy the ‘normal’ ACLO card for €59,95 for one year.
