Sports and Recreational Facilities

A variety of resources are available for visiting researchers and PhD students wishing to engage in sports and recreational facilities.

Frescatihallen independently runs sporting facilities on campus for both students and employees at the University. Further information can be found at the following web address:

As an employee at the University you are entitled to one hour/week of preventive health care (friskvård,i.e. keep-fit activities) during working hours. You have access to a number of free or heavily discounted activities in Fresctihallen and also to the staff gym.

The training network, Friskis och Svettis, offer employees at Stockholm University a 10 % discount on the Friskis och Svettis annual pass, Allträning. You may purchase the card directly at any of Friskis and Svettis' fourteen facilities in Stockholm. Make sure to take your University payslip, together with an personal ID if you are intending to buy the card.

Emplyees are also entitled to reimbursement for basic health and fitness activities to the sum of SEK 1.500 per year on presentation of receipts. The reimbursement will only be paid for training fees or for the purchase of entry passes for leisure centres such as gyms, swimming pools and other physical activity centres. However, the activity must be a basic keep-fit sport, i.e. not golf, horse-riding, etc.

Research students who are not employees are entitled to the same health and fitness benefits as employees.
