Chalmers Student Union

"There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy"

Chalmers Student Union makes sure we find all those beautiful reasons in and around our campus to have a brilliant experience during our stay in Chalmers. 

Student Union or the Chalmers Studentkår (as it's called in Swedish) is the student organization in Chalmers which, acts in the interest of students. The Union makes sure that students are provided an education quality par excellence and a platform to interact with companies and to learn the latest ropes of industry.  
The Student Union is run by the student representatives.  These representatives are chosen every year by the Student Union Council and the Election Committee to run the daily operations of the Student Union. They represent students in matters concerning education, campus life, student welfare and future career prospects. 

Every student in Chalmers should be a member of the Chalmers Student Union and is entitled to the Student Union card. The Student Union card is a proof of the Student Union membership and allows students to take exams. It also offers plenty of benefits such as discounts in Student Union restaurants and cafes, free usage of pool and gym hall and several other such privileges. For details visit Chalmers Student Union web page. 

Besides all this, the student Union has tons of Societies and Committees under it. These committees and societies make sure that students don't miss the fun side of university life. Committees are usually involved in arranging activities and parties for students. I had myself been a part of BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) for almost a year and let me say such stints add to one's personal growth as well.  CIRC (Chalmers International Reception Committee) is another committee which is highly popular among the International students as it make sure that International students have a comfortable stay once they arrive in Gothenburg. Student Societies unlike committees are organizationally independent from the Student Union. There are a lot of student societies in Chalmers and you can join any of them depending on your interests.

To conclude, the Student Union has a lot to offer to students. It makes sure students get the most out of their stay in Chalmers and get the best of both education and fun.
