Student Associations

Learn more on Campus Life today!

To be part of a student association and student life in general is paramount to experiencing a positive University experience. Student Associations provide students with valuable skills such as the ability to work in a team environment, to engage with the University beyond academics, and to belong to a family away from home. This type of engagement is essential to taking full advantage of the "University Experience".

This positive experience can provide students with the following opportunities: helping to network with other young professionals, development into well-rounded individuals, and showcase a student's abilities gained from their academic studies.

Criteria for new associations

University of Luxembourg Student Associations are student groups brought together by a common interest, run by students for students. The Student Associations plan different types of activities on the University of Luxembourg campuses or further afield with the help and support from the Office of Student Life.

Students (Bachelor, Master, PhD) of the University of Luxembourg can at any time to set up a student association and apply for recognition of the association.

In order to obtain recognition, the following criteria must be fulfilled:

  • The application must be made by current University of Luxembourg students
  • The board members of student associations must be regularly enrolled students at the University of Luxembourg. With the exception of employees of the University of Luxembourg who may represent one third of the board
  • A new student association’s core activities do not overlap with an existing association and do not conflict with the University of Luxembourg’s values
  • The association must be open to all University of Luxembourg students
  • The association does not replicate a current service offered by the University
  • The student association may not have any political or religious purpose
  • The offers and organised events are mainly oriented towards registered students (Bachelor, Master or PhD) of the University
  • The student association must be sustainable for future years
  • Only student associations that represent a larger group of students (at least 50) are eligible for financial support
  • A recognised student association may choose the seat of the university as its seat. However, before the “asbl” necessary for recognition is founded, the statutes must be submitted to the University for approval.

 An annual subsidy is provided for all recognised student associations if the following conditions are met:

  • Submission of the annual financial and activities reports by the agreed deadline
  • The Student Association represents a larger group of students (min. 50 students).
  • The recognition criteria are fulfilled
  • The minimum number of members is 20 students.
  • The planned activities target all University of Luxembourg students.
