The student union’s main task is to safeguard the interests of the students by ensuring the students are given good quality education, a good study environment and access to social activities. The student union also strives to establish good cooperation with the university, the region and the trade and industry on Gotland to play an active role on the national arena.
Gotlands Studentkår Rindi (founded in 1998) is a democratic interest organisation for the students. It represents all students who are studying at Uppsala University Campus Gotland.
Through our study-related policy activities, we act on behalf of the students with regard to the university, we monitor the study programmes at Campus Gotland and help students with study-related issues.
Rindi is an organisation that strives to bring about improvements for students on Gotland through lobbying activities at both the university and Region Gotland.
You can come to us if you have any views or want to change something that would improve things for students.
We are also here if someone needs legal assistance, for example, if you feel you have been badly treated by the university or have an issue about how something has been handled at the campus.
If you have troubles with a teacher, a course, a class mate, the working environment or anything else, come to us. Our president exists to help you.
Send an email to email@example.com or give us a call: 0707 18 31 09

The Kitchen Guild cooks food for pub evenings and other gatherings.
The Party Guild, a.k.a. RaukSex, organises events.

The Guest list
Admission to the bar is usually free of charge for members after they have proven their union membership (student union ID card or other proof, for instance, membership payment receipt). There are a few exceptions, such as Halloween and other special events.
Members (regular and honorary members, but not supporting members) can also register a guest on the guest list.
Guests on the guest list AND other students (non-members) with an Uppsala University (UU) card pay a SEK 50 entrance fee for the bar.
Note that the guest list is printed out one hour before the event starts so you must register your guest before then.
When your guest arrives at Rindi, you must of course be there so that we can verify your own membership.
Please fill in the information asked for below to register someone on the guest list.
