Why should I become a member of the Student Union?
– Save money
As a member you will have access to special Member Discounts (pdf) in addition to the general Student 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 gymcard, 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 Student Pubs in both Kalmar and 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. To get access to the Student Pubs, you need to be a member of The Student Union, 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
