10 June 2009, Parliament decided that compulsory student union membership should be abolished from 1 July 2010. This means that students from July 1, 2010 no longer have to be a member of the student union.

If you do choose to join, your membership-fees will be used to pay for the discounts and benefits you receive at all student union buildings in Norrköping and Linköping, and to support all the work performed by the student unions and other employees.

Without your membership, there would be no student union buildings, nor anyone who can speak in your interest against those who decide at LiU. A large part of your student fees goes also directly to your section, who ensures that you have a pleasant atmosphere in your program and that all students have a direct channel to the programs senior master and others who decide about your program.
