Why should I become a member?

A good investment

Joining Uppsala Student Union is one of the best investments you can make during your studies! We are an organisation for students, working to improve the quality of education and represent the student voice wherever you as a student are affected.

Uppsala Student Union has e.g. pushed through decisions such as:

  • Anonymisation of exams
  • Better working environment at VFU and internship
  • Att universitetet inte kan tvinga till webbkamera under lektion/tenta

We'll take your case to the university

We are represented from departmental boards to the highest decision-making body, the Board of Governors, and influence everything from the design of individual courses to issues that affect all students at Uppsala University. We are a consultative body and represent students in decisions concerning our study conditions, and promote issues such as all students having access to at least ten hours of teaching time per week and students being seen as active participants, not customers, within the university.

Getting involved in Uppsala Student Union is thus a way of working to improve the quality of one's education and study situation. In addition, you will benefit from several membership advantages, join and strengthen student influence today!

About membership

A membership in Uppsala Student Union is a membership in an organisation that actively works to ensure that student perspectives are included wherever they affect the conditions of your education, we help students to drive change in courses and programmes and your membership gives the union greater legitimacy and influence when we drive student issues.

We also provide important functions such as student and postgraduate ombudsmen, who can help you as an advisory body on matters such as examination issues, if you feel you have been treated badly or have other issues related to your education, and assist with disciplinary matters.

We provide accommodation and legal advice on tenancies through Studentboet and works to broaden recruitment to Uppsala University by supporting young people in socio-economically disadvantaged areas. Being a member is a commitment that affects the availability and quality of education for you and for others.

Uppsala studentkår + Mecenat

Hur får jag mecenatkortet?
För att få Mecenatkortet måste du vara aktiv student. Som medlem i Uppsala studentkår får du Mecenatkortet som medlemskort automatiskt när du är registrerad i Ladok. Är du inte medlem i kåren kan du ansöka om ett Mecenatkort här. Se till att ha registreringsintyg från Ladok tillgängligt för uppladdning. Har du studiestöd från CSN får du Mecenatkortet automatiskt en liten bit in på terminen.

Hur fungerar Mecenatkortet?
Är du medlem i kåren är Mecenatkortet ditt medlemskort. Är du registrerad i Ladok och blir medlem i kåren skickas beställning av ditt medlemskort mer eller mindre omgående. Inom ett par timmar får du ett mail från Mecenat med en länk för att skapa konto på mecenat.com / i Mecenat-appen. Har du redan konto hos Mecenat är det bara att logga in i appen. Med Mecenatkortet får du tillgång till tusentals studentrabatter via mecenat.com, både lokalt i butiker samt på nätet.

Studentrabatt på SL och UL
Studentrabatt på resor med SL/UL ges till studenter med en studieomfattning på minst 75%, vilket motsvarar minst 22,5 hp/termin. För doktorander gäller det att ha en registrerad studieaktivitet på minst 75% föregående eller innevarande termin.

OBS! Vid resa med SL/UL ska du kunna uppvisa Mecenatkort (eller Studentkort) med SL:s logotyp på. Saknar du SL:s logo vid resa kan du riskera böter.

Kontrollera alltid ditt Mecenatkort innan du köper resa med studentrabatt. Saknar du SL:s logotyp men uppfyller kraven – kontakta kåren eller skicka registreringsintyg via formuläret här.
