Sports Council MUSST (Maastricht Universiteit Studenten Sport Stichting) is the coordinating body for all Student Sport Associations (SSAs) in Maastricht and is governed by students for students. The council has been established indefinitely and is not driven by making profit. The main aim for the Sports Council is to promote the practice of sports by students from Maastricht University & Zuyd Hogeschool.

Sports Council MUSST supports SSAs in several ways. MUSST assists in generating new memberships and applying for subsidies to support the SSAs and students registered at the Maastricht University and Zuyd Hogeschool who are in possession of a UM Sport membership. A Student Sport Association can join Sports Council MUSST if they meet the requirements stated in the council’s amendment. These requirements are also listed in the chapter subsidies. The Council stimulates the organization and participation of sport events.

Members of Students Sport Associations can come to the Sports Council for information regarding registrations and subsidies for any tournament, as well as general information and advice.  Non-members in possession of a UM Sport membership can also come to the MUSST for this kind of information. However, these non-members can only get subsidies for participating in (Large) National Student Championships.

MUSST is, like all student sport councils in the Netherlands, part of Studentensport Nederland (SSN). Sport teams from Maastricht University annually participate in national tournaments such as the Groot Nederlands Studenten Kampioenschap (GNSK), Studentenwintersport en de Batavierenrace with the support of MUSST.
