Does your association not yet exist? And you are convinced that more students are looking for a club like this? Then it's time for you to think about founding a new association. If you are still in the orientation stage, it can be useful to get in touch with us. As there are already more than 100 associations and foundations connected to us, we can provide you with useful tips during this process. Moreover, we would like to explain what the procedure look like and what the conditions are for becoming a Union participant.
Why connect with the Student Union?
Most of the student organizations of the University of Twente decide to become Union recognized. We help you continuing your association in many ways. Next, we also find it very important that we can represent your association’s interests. We do this within the organization of the University of Twente and the municipality of Enschede. The only thing we ask from Union participants is their input. Only with your opinion we are able to know what’s up in the student community. In this way we can make Twente’s student life better and unforgettable.
