Other support

Below is description and contact information for support external to the union. You can always contact the union first to get guidance in where to turn.

The Student Ombudsman

The Student Ombudsman is a student service of Lund University Student Unions (LUS). This means that the help you get is on your conditions and with the procurement of your interests. The Student Ombudsman is mandated to assist unions and students at the University when they run into problems and issues related to their time of studies. No matter how small or how serious the problem is you can get help and this is of course free of charge.

The Student Health Center

The Student Health Centre offers counselling to Lund University students. Our staff work primarily with psychological problems that affect your ability to study, such as stress, worry, anxiety, depression, transitional issues and/or academic difficulties. This is in addition to other public and private health clinics where you can go for general medical issues, sexual health and contraception.

Your care centre employs care staff with a broad range of competencies who can help you with the most common diseases, chronic diseases, many of the diseases that affect children and older people, mental health problems and various injuries. Care centres form the foundation on which both primary care and Skåne’s general health care rest. Primary care will, if needed, refer you to hospital care.
