Why should I become a member of the Student Union?
– Save money
As a member you will have access to special member discounts in addition to the general student discounts accessed via the app Studentkortet. You will often gain more financially through a membership than without it, if you use some of our discounts. Perhaps you will visit a hockey game, buy a gym card, 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. You’re also welcome to talk to us if you want to leave suggestions on new discounts.

Växjö. There are two student pubs in Växjö where many students meet and hang out. The prices of food and drinks are student friendly and different theme nights, concerts and other events are arranged on a regular basis. To get access to the student pubs, you need to be a member of the student union, Linnéstudenterna, and you must also bring valid ID (not a residence permit card).
Kalmar. At the moment there isn’t a student pub but there are specific student events organized by Linnéstudenterna in cooperation with local venues. The prices of food and drinks are student friendly and different theme nights, concerts and other events are arranged. To get access to these events, you need to be a member of Linnéstudenterna.
