Support & Help

If you have run into issues regarding your education or your study situation the union is here and wants to help you. If we can’t help you ourselves, we try to refer you to the delegates, the student counselor or the person we think can help you the best.

Have you been discriminated against or sexually harassed? In that case you can turn to 'An easy way in' There are drop-in time slots available each week, where one of GUS´s student- and doctorate delegates are present at Medicinareberget. You can contact the delegate at:

If you as a student or a doctoral student have run into problems in your education, you are welcome to contact the ombudsmen. The students' ombudsmen have as their mission three main tasks.

  • Helping students and doctoral students that have run into issues in their education
  • Investigating issues that have high relevance for students
  • Support for students that are facing the Disciplinary board at Gothenburg University.

The ombudsmen also assist the student unions in researching what is applicable regarding the laws, rules and regulations that guide the university’s work. As opposed to the student unions, the ombudsmen do not operate on a political level but are there only as support for the students.

The ombudsmen are available for all students at Gothenburg university and do their best to help you or guide you to where you can find help. The ombudsmen can be contacted at or personally through the contact information found on this link
