To, čo bolo dobré včera, dnes už nestačí a zajtra bude málo to, čo dnes napĺňa naše nároky.

Jan Amos Komenský

Student life

Besides the science, research and education, the uni­versity also supports publically available social, cultural and sports activities.

Leisure activities offer 25 different sports to relax sufficiently. Collective sports such as basketball, floorball, water polo or traditional football will take on interpersonal relations and athletics, yoga, and climbing on the artificial wall will strengthen the individual's ability. Students can choose even modern sports, such as skin-diving, softball, Tabata or noble yacht­ing. The sports are performed in the school athletic stadium, eight gymnasiums, baseball ground, squash and tennis courts.

The cam­pus covers sport clubs Akademik and Slávia, choir Collegium Technicum and folk groups Jahodná and Borievka, and forms Sympho­ny Orchestra of the Technical University of Košice. Student television and radio broad­cast up-to-date information.
