KUNST is established November 15th 1994 as Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen Studenten Turnvereniging. Meaning Catholic University Nijmegen Student Gymnasticsassociation. These days we don’t carry our long name anymore, but we’re simply KUNST. This has to do with the fact that the Radboud University is not allowed to carry the title catholic any more since November 16th 2020.
The association is, just as all other studentsportassociations in Nijmegen, connected to the Radboud Sports Centre (RSC). Due to this, our members can enjoy a low contribution, and by purchasing the sportscard they can also practice many other sports.
We have started in 1994 with just a small group. Since than we have grown to a larger association with 150 enthusiastic members. Our members are both men and women, some who have practiced gymnastics at a national level, some have had their first ever gymnastics experience at KUNST, and a lot of members are somewhere in between.
As a proud association we love to show that we are members. We do this by singing our song, showing our merchandise and to cover the city in our stickers.
