Below is some information to our most frequently asked question from new students:
The Student Union do not own any accommodation of our own and thereby we can´t as an organisation help individuals to find an apartment.
We are working with this area in a political manner and therefore we can only give tips to students looking for an apartment – you find the tips on our webpage.
If you have a question regarding the accommodation that you are getting through the university, you need to turn to the Accommodation Office. (This only applies to international students who applied for the accommodation guarantee)
When can I pay the membership fee?
You need to register on your courses before you can pay the membership fee. You can register on your courses earliest 1 week before the course start. Aim at paying the fee within the first two weeks but it´s not required that you pay it the first day.
There are numerous different groups on campus in which you can get involved or simply attend the events and activities they produce. You find a list of the suborganization to the union on our website and if you don´t find what you would like to do you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the beginning of the semester to start a new initiative on campus.
The Student Union is not involved in the admission process or the schedule of role calls. Therefore we are unable to answer questions in these two areas. In terms of admissions contact JU´s Admissions Office and in terms of the role calls contact Service Center at JU (not to be confused with Student Service which is operated by the Student Union).
