What do we do?

The Science Student Union (LUNA) represents all 1800 students studying at bachelors or masters level at the Faculty of Science at Lund University. The operation of our student union can be divided into three major areas; Education, Career and Recreation.
Here are short summaries of each area. If you have any questions do not hesitate in contacting the union at luna@luna.lu.se.


The main objective for the Science Student Union (LUNA) is to monitor and participate in the development of education and conditions for students at the Faculty of Science. The main tools for doing so are the elected student representatives, both at faculty level and department level, elected  by the union parliament and the student councils respectively. They represent the collective student opinions in all deciding organs throughout the Faculty of Science. The union also serves to facilitate the list of rights which is a written agreement between the students and the university regarding your rights and obligations as a student at Lund University and see to that it is followed.

Through collaboration with LUS (Lunds Universitets Studentkårer), SNaK (Sveriges NaturvetarKårer) and SFS (Sveriges Förenta Studentkårer) we make sure that the student opinion at the Faculty of Science is heard even at university and national level.


Every year the Science Student Union (LUNA) organises a Career Fair ATLAS for science students to experience the career possibilities after their studies, both in academia and in the private sector. The Corporate Relations Committee also organises an array of inspirational lectures and workshops regarding career possibilities for the students at the Faculty of Science.


Your time in Lund is ment to be fun and engaging while also meeting new friends. Therefore the Science Student Union organises many recreational activities throughout the year for the students to meet each other. Balls (UTOPIA), an introduction period for new students and sports activities are just a few examples and are led by some of our many committees.

The Student Councils also organises their own recreational activities for the students at their departments.
