As physical activity and sports have always been considered an important element of the non-academic life of the university, there is a specific unit within the university specializing on the organization of sport activities (it is called Centre for Physical Education and Sports - CTVS) and the university premises do include a variety of sport facilities.
Both students and employees of the university can choose from a wide range of sport courses and activities offered by the CTVS. Some of the sport courses are regular semester-long courses taking place directly in the premises of the university or in other sport venues around the city of Prague, some of them are off-site courses (focused e.g. on skiing, biking, etc.). Among the sports that can be practised, either within the courses organized by CTVS or as individual activities of students, alumni and employees, are e.g.: aerobics, ball sports, swimming, outdoor sports, tennis, water sports.
For some sports, regular teams have been created and these represent the university in competitions on local, national and sometimes also international level. Members of these teams are often not only students of the university, but also VŠE alumni and employees, so it is another way how long-lasting links between the university and its people are formed and conserved.
Many sport activities are organized also by students themselves.
Student clubs and associations formed by VŠE students are in general quite numerous and they are active in very different fields including not only sports and games, but also various professional/academic fields (entrepreneurship, managerial skills, political science, statistics, etc.), cultural activites (folklore dance and music, film club, choir and orchestra, theatre group and others) and student magazines. Events organized by these clubs (such as lectures by guests who are important persons in their fields of activity, discussions, workshops) do very much enrich the life of the university.
Besides that, there is AEGEE. It is a student organization that promotes co-operation, communication and integration amongst young people in Europe. As a non-governmental, politically independent and non-profit organization AEGEE is open to students and young people from all faculties and disciplines – today it counts 13.000 members, active in more than 200 university cities in 40 European countries, making it the biggest interdisciplinary student association in Europe.
