Pay the Membership fee

In order to study at Jönköping University, you're required to become a member of the Student Union. This is done by paying your Student Union membership fee each semester.

In 2011, Jönköping University decided that compulsory Student Union membership should remain in place at the University. In brief, this means that all students, with the exeption of PhD students and basår/ bastermin, at the University must be members of the Student Union. This is to ensure that the students have a strong influence over their education and the overall environment on campus.


There are two ways to pay the memberhsip fee:

  1. Pay the membership fee onlineexternal link, opens in new window.
  2. Payment at the Student Service reception counter: It is possible to pay the fee directly at Student Service, BUT remember that there's normally a very long queue at the start of a semester. And we will add an additional service fee.

Note. Before you can pay the membership fee you need to confirm your studies at Jönköping University via StudentLadokexternal link, opens in new window.
