We want your time at Halmstad University to be the best time of your life!

Most people say that your time at university is the best time in life. New friends, newfound liberty, new knowledge, new experiences and new relationships.

For most, involvement is what most clearly characterises life as a student. Getting involved in anything out of all that is offered to students can help you make new friends, make fun memories and have experiences that make a difference on your way to your dream job.

Halmstad University is characterised by momentum and entrepreneurial spirit. And that’s why you can find a lot of groups to get involved in. The range of areas to get involved in is wide and we can almost guarantee that there’s something that fits all.

Together they arrange over 500 event per year. Everything between more depth to your resumé to happy, social events.

Below you’ll find lots of areas connected to your studies at Halmstad University to get involved in. The future starts here!

Get involved – get ready for the future and make friends for life!

The Student Unionexternal link

The Student Union is a membership organisation. It organises different types of student social events such as job fairs, parties and Fresher's Week.

It runs a pub where you can enjoy a cosy atmosphere, nice drinks and a cheap meal. Fresher's week involves around 1,500 people and a lot of laughs.

One of the Student Union's branches is called UFO (University Friendship Organization). It focuses on the integration between Swedish students and students from all over the world! For example, it gives you the possibility to visit Lapland (Northern part of Sweden) where you can try dog-sledding, visit the Ice Hotel of Jukkasjärvi and maybe, if you are lucky, see the northern lights.

If you want to be involved either as a participant or as an organiser, please visit the website.

Kalle Pyk, Economics student

"I am involved in HSIF where I am in charged of the economics and I am also a part of the board."

"I have come to know a lot of people I wouldn't have met elsewhere because of HSIF and got experience that made me grow as a human being."

"I think my involvement brings more depth to my resume but it's not the main objective."
