Uppsala Student Union strives to improve the lives of students in Uppsala.

The Union is a student interest organisation and therefore works to influence the university, the community, and the state so that the interests of Uppsala students are taken care of.

This entails that we work with guestions that are directly relevant to education, but also with questions that for example have to do with housing and economy. Helping students  that stumble onto problems concerning their education is an important part of our work. The Union's Student Liaison Officers, the Student Ombudsman, and the Doctoral Ombudsman are always there for students that have been misstreated.

The Union's prime responsibility is to make sure that student interests are always protected. We do this by establishing student representatives in different preparatory and decision making bodies within the university. We make sure that students are represented regardless of whether it is at a meeting with the dean or with the disciplinary committee.
