Social Science Union

Social Science Union

The Social Science Union at Lund University is the student union for those studying at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Lund, Malmö or Helsingborg. We protect your rights as a student, monitor the quality of your education, organise social events for students at the entire faculty and help you connect with the business world through our labour market activities.

Our area of activity includes the 10 departments of the Faculty, the Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS) and the Graduate School. As a student, you are welcome to get involved in one of our project groups (communication, ball, novisch, labour market fair, etc.), as a student representative at departmental or faculty level, or within one of our three sections: Agora (Helsingborg Campus), Pluto (Department of Cultural and Economic Geography) and the Socionomy Section (School of Social Sciences). You can also run to represent all social science students in the Representative Assembly, to sit on our Board and to many other positions of trust. Read more here to find out all the ways you can get active in the union!

If you ever encounter problems or have concerns about your education, the union is here to support you. You can reach us easily by email, or by coming to our drop-in hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11am and 1pm. Of course, you are also welcome to drop-in if you are curious about the activities of the union, want to get involved or just fancy a coffee!

The house of the Social Science Union (called Samvetet) can be found at the bottom of the Paradis block, Sandgatan 9 (G:a Tapetserarverkstaden) opposite Sociologen (house G). This is the office of our full-time elected representatives, and it is a working and meeting place for our active members. Welcome here!
