Who can become a member?
You have to be a student at Linnaeus University to become a member of the Student Union and you can join anytime. We recommend that you join at the start of the semester so you won’t miss out on any of the fun! You can become a member as soon as you have your Letter of acceptance/Notification of selection results. You can join anytime during the semester though.
How do you become a member?
The easiest way to become a member is to visit our offices in Kalmar or Växjö. In Kalmar we are situated in the University Library and we are open between 11 am and 1 pm Mon, Wed & Thur. In Växjö our office is located in the Tufvan building on campus, and we are open between 12 pm and 3 pm Mon & Wed to Fri. Note that you cannot pay with euro.

Why should I become a member of the Student Union?
– Save money
As a member you will have access to special Member discounts. You will often gain more financially through a membership than without it, if you use some of our discounts. Perhaps you will buy a gym card, a plane ticket, course literature or a pair of sneakers. Being a member of Linnéstudenterna is a possibility to save money! We are constantly working on finding more discounts and benefits for you.
– Access to the Student pubs
There are two student pubs in Växjö where many students meet and hang out, Stallarna and Sivans. The prices of food and drinks are student friendly and different theme nights, concerts and other events are arranged. In Kalmar there isn’t a specific student pub but there are events organized for students at some of the local venues. To get access to the student pubs and specific student nights, you need to be a member of Linnéstudenterna.
– Free coffee or tea every Thursday
You can find us every Thursday at 12.30 in the University Library, Kalmar and in the K-building, Växjö. Remember to bring your member card or a certification of membership (paper slip that you can get from Linnéstudenterna’s reception) Find our addresses here: linnestudenterna.se/in-english/about-us/addresses-and-phone-numbers
