There are a large number of student organisations at Umeå University. On this page we aim to one day have gathered most of them, but for now we can at least present a few. Hopefully you can find one or two that interest you and that can help enrich your social life while you are here in Umeå.
CredoAre you curious about God or religion in general? Looking for other Christian students or people who want to find out about God? You are welcome to join us in Credo. They organise discussion groups, prayer/worship meetings, lectures, "fika", parties and so on.
NationernaIf you want to make new friends, find people to play some floor ball with or learn what a "sittning" is, then joining a "Nation" is definitely the thing for you! You can find them in Lindellhallen during lunch time where they are available to answer questions or sell you a membership.
Student Radio StationThe student radio station consists of students producing radio shows for students. You can listen to the student radio via their website or on 102,3 MHz. Some of the programmes are in english, produced by international students.
