    Making a reservation and checking in

    • Make a reservation in the timetable on the martial arts page.
    • You need a reservation for every visit to USC.
    • You can make a reservation 6 days in advance.
    • You can have 2 active reservations for the upcoming 6 days. But as soon as your first reservation is over, you can make a new one. So, you can work out more than twice a week (if there are free spots)!
    • The number of reservations is unlimited on the day itself.
    • You can enter half an hour before the start of the class/training you booked.
    • Make sure you’re on time, you’re disrupting the class/training when you’re too late.
    • You can choose how you enter USC: by using the finger scan or by using the My USC – mobile access app. Download the app: Android and iOS.
    • If you choose to use the My USC – mobile access app, you check in by scanning the QR code at the access gates. This way (or by using your finger scan) you’re automatically checked in.
    • Bring a towel and a filled water bottle.
    • Bring your own equipment as much as you can (like a mat, resistance bands and boxing gloves). Also for group classes and martial arts. The front desk offers a modest range of sports equipment and towels.
    • Read all reservation and house rules thoroughly before coming to USC! We can only keep things safe together.

    Cancelling and no show fee

    Booked a class, but can’t make it? Please cancel in advance: our capacity is limited!

    • Cancel up to one hour before the start of your reservation (but earlier is encouraged!).
    • Are you not cancelling (on time)? Then you risk a no show fee of €3,-.
    • Are you not paying the no show fee? In that case you can’t make a reservation/work out for 2 weeks.
    • Your no show fee doesn’t end up on the big USC company pile. Check in which sports goal we’re investing the no show fee income.
