Are you a new student?


Hi all new students!

Soon the semester will starts and it will be great fun to see the entire campus filled with students again!

The main task of the union

Umeå Medical Student Union is the student for you who is a student at the Faculty of Medicine in Umeå University. It is our mission to conduct education, quality assurance and represent students who have been at the Faculty of Medicine. To us, you can always turn around if you encounter problems related to your education. The union also has the task of ensuring that student life is safe, good and fun!

All programs at the Faculty of Medicine have a study council to which each course elects representatives. The student council represents the students on the courses in the faculty’s program council. To read more about what a study council is, and to contact those chosen during the previous year, click here ( We hope, of course, that you want to get involved in the work of the Student Union!

Mottagning / Reception

The reception is arranged by Umeå University in cooperation with the student unions. Those responsible for the content of the reception are often called generals or main fathers. These people have had a special education both organized by student health at Umeå University and the Student Union. Participation in the reception is of course voluntary, and all activities are either non-alcoholic or offered with non-alcoholic options. The reception is for you to feel welcome to the student city of Umeå, and to get to know your study colleagues that you will share in the coming years. Do not hesitate to contact the student’s social worker at if you have questions regarding the reception.

Membership in Umeå Medical Student Union

Being a member of the union gives you as a student many advantages:
• The member’s membership card required to enter Umeå student hubs and perhaps our own union house, Kårhuset Villan. Something that usually is a standing activity on the reception.
• Ability to engage in student union or get funding for self-organized student activities.
• Opportunity to participate in union arrangements, buy cheap cinematickets for SF bio and the unions sought after backpacks.
• Possibility to participate in FestMästeriets, SpelMästeriet and SportMästeriet’s popular activities and more.


The registration days are during the first semester of the autumn, Monday 3/9, Tuesday 4/9 and Friday 7/9 between 10:00 and 16:00. It is of course possible to come other times as well or our regular opening hours (all weekdays 10-13) later in the term. During the enrollment there is the possibility of signing up and in addition, the union gives you a little surprise as a new member and some good information. Membership costs only 360kr per full year or 200kr per semester, the cheapest on campus!

Valid card identification is required to be able to participate in all the reception activities that take place at Kårhuset Villan and the other student pubs, which usually last a lot during the first two weeks. Your generals will bring you to Kårhuset Villan any of the above enrollment days to offer you the opportunity to enroll you in the choir and take full advantage of student life! This is usually planned in the schedule of the program so you do not miss anything.

For students who study distance courses, or study at half-time, there is the possibility to pay reduced membership fees. Contact the Unions Office at for more information about You think this may apply.


There will be very many students coming to Kårhuset Villan to sign up these days. Our member service Membit offers the opportunity to register via the internet. This is the easiest way to do this via our website, click here or go to The more people who have the opportunity to do this the better. Management simply gets faster, the queues are less and you have the opportunity to take the time to do the fun things ahead of you! If you have previously registered as a student with us, you must log in to pay your fee.

Pre-registration also takes place at the same time payment for membership.

However, it is important to note that even as pre-registered you need to get past Kårhuset Villan, preferably during enrollment, to get a stamped certificate that you are a member so that you have the opportunity to participate in the reception fully before your membership card (Mecenat) come.
