Stampus is a non-profit organisation run by students, for students, and among other things they run Thursday Pub, regular dinners and brunch in their own restaurant as well as weekly sporting events. Their goal is to create a feeling of belonging and to provide students with the opportunity to meet in a way that the regular educational environment does not offer. A Stampus memership can be bought at Campus during the lunch hour every Thursday, and you are welcome to attend or volunteer in their activities (a great way to make new friends and improve your Swedish).
The Engineers’ Section, called the ING-section, is a part of the Technology Union in Lund and represent students and monitor courses at the LTH School of Engineering.
