Leisure activities

It is our concern to provide you with a diverse cultural life at your places of study during your studies. Therefore, we offer a range of leisure activities that will ease your start in your new home and enrich your student life.

Students' Clubs

The Studierendenwerk Thüringen provides twelve students' clubs in Thuringia with rent-free rooms. Thus, these clubs can offer you favourable entrance fees and culinary options as well as a varied cultural programme. In addition, the staff of the cultural offices are available to provide the clubs with advice and assistance. Feel free to drop by - as a guest and as a member. The clubs are always on the lookout for motivated contributors.

You are invited to learn about different cultures and people, listen to interesting lectures and share your own experiences, taste typical food (currently suspended due to the pandemic) or take part in traditional dances. The entrance is always free of charge.

To get admission to events and facilities without having to pay extra, you must first buy tickets at the ticket/box offices and bring your student ID (thoska) with you. Admission is only granted on presentation of this ticket and a valid thoska card with the note "Semesterticket".

The Kulturticket does not include the Philharmonic Ball and New Year's Eve Concert, the Long Night of Museums, the dance festival "Theatre in Motion" and the summer event to open the Cultural Arena.

Drawing workshops

The drawing workshop of the Studierendenwerk on the subject of Nudes takes place during the lecture period of the University of Jena in the Haus auf der Mauer (International Centre) every Thursday, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.. Under the artistic direction of the freelance artist Astrid Leiterer you can give free rein to your creativity. Previous knowledge is not necessary.

The participants use pencil, charcoal, pastel chalk, red chalk or ink to try to put the fascination of the line of the human body, the fascination of the expression of the human being itself as well as the representation of the character of the individual on paper. The understanding of proportions, the creation of internal drawings through hatching and the reproduction of the living expression of the model up to abstraction requires a high degree of observation, concentration and creativity and trains the artists not only in drawing.
