Kick Off

Information about the start of the semester, the Kick Off can be found in the magazine.


A secure environment

Fadders and volunteers

The Kick Off involve approximately 700 fadders and volunteers who have been trained in leadership and first aid, to make sure all students feel secure and included in all activities. In addition, there will be reps. from Jönköping University available to make sure students always can turn to them as well.

IQ-certified events and organisation

Akademien, Kick Off and Kick Off Festival are all IQ- certified. This means that Jönköping Student Union together with Jönköping University actively work to reduce the alcohol consumption among students. During the Kick Off Festival alcohol free beverages will be free of charge, including water. The same goes for Akademien, all year around.


Below is some information to our most frequently asked question from new students:

Questions about accommodation:

The Student Union do not own any accommodation of our own and therefor 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)

Question about the membership fee

When can I pay the membership fee?

You need to register for 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.

Question about the study social life

There are numerous different groups on campus you can get involved with or simply attend the events and activities they organise. You find a list of the Student Union's suborganizations on our website. Don't find what you're looking for? You can contact associations@js.ju.se in the beginning of the semester to start a new initiative on campus.

Questions about admission and role calls?

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).
