Student union and guilds

Every faculty at Lund University has a student union. The Student Union at LTH is “Teknologkåren”, also called “TLTH”.

The student unions are part of the unique student life of Lund University and LTH. The University is filled with exciting traditions dating back to the 18th and 19th century. The student culture has evolved over time and offers a great variety of associations and activities for students, mostly organised within the Student Unions, the Student Nations or the Academic Society.

The Student Union at LTH

The activities of TLTH are usually divided into three branches: Education, Career, and Recreation. The aim is to make sure that your education is educative, competitive and assist you with important contacts for your future career while you are having fun and making friends for life.

Teknologkåren (TLTH) is an organisation completely run by students. Every year eleven elected student representatives take one year of approved leave from their studies in order to work at Teknologkåren. These students are called the “Sabbatical Officers” and their work includes improving the quality of the education, enriching student life, creating career opportunities, and safeguarding student rights.


If you have problems with your courses, comments about your study environment or if you would like more information about the student union, you are more than welcome to drop by their office in Kårhuset or to contact the Education Committe or Head of Educational Advocacy.
