Uppsala Student Union appoints representatives to all the drafting and decision-making bodies at Uppsala University that handle student-related matters. In practice, this means more than 900 different appointments, which together represent the base of what we call student influence.
Uppsala Student Union is also represented in a broad range of university bodies, such as the equality committee, the university management, the Academic Senate, Uppsala learning lab, the internationalization group and the student cooperation group (Studensamverkansgruppen), where the students' interests are defended.
We also have a Buddy program. The International Buddy Programme is a centralised buddy matching service for all international students coming to Uppsala.
Uppsala Student Union also meets with other stakeholders such as the Municipal Executive Board' working committee (KSAU), members of the Swedish parliament, various student associations and other student unions, the United Nations of Uppsala, The Swedish National Union of Students and various trade unions.
Uppsala Student Union offers a reception, where students can come for help and advice every weekday. In the Student Union Building there are public computers, work spaces, the possibility of borrowing a telephone, a fax machine and a copy machine, we offer hand loans for students in urgent financial distress, a second-hand book shop for course literature and we manage the keys for Majklockan's student housing, together with a broad selection of information and reading material.
