Student Union

The Student Union works to ensure that you as a student have the best possible experience at the university! Through events, social activities, and monitoring the educational programmes, the Student Union supports you both in your studies and in your free time.

The Student Union arranges a lot of events every year so that you as a student have something fun to do in addition to your studies! Before each new academic year, we also arrange Introduction for new students, in which you can participate in enjoyable activities to get to know your new classmates, your Student Buddy (fadder in Swedish), and the university. You can participate in Introduction either as a new student or as a Student Buddy.

Students' conditions when it comes to their studies, such as the work environment, finances, and housing, are also continuously monitored by the Student Union. The Student Union furthermore conducts monitoring of the educational programmes by ensuring that representative students participate in preparatory and decision-making bodies at the university.
