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 become a member online. You can also 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 noon and 2 pm (12.00-14.00) Mon to Fri. Note that you cannot pay with euro, and preferably with card.
The membership card
Above you see what our membership card looks like. The card shows some of the national discounts holders, to see all of them look in the app or at http://www.studentkortet.se. The logos in the white rectangle are the travelling logos. You need these to get student discounts on travelling. If the rectangle is empty, try to update the (digital) card by clicking on the arrow in the bottom right corner. If it remains empty, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
