Mälardalen Student Union is looking for collaborations with actors who in a sustainable and ethical way want to contribute to living campuses for our members in both Eskilstuna and Västerås. It is thanks to the student union’s members that the student union exists, and the idea is that benefits and offers will attract both old and new members to support the organisation.
We who work at Mälardalen’s Student Union are committed and passionate about what we do. The students’ interests are always in the forefront for us and we are constantly working to develop student life on our campus locations. Since the student union works for increased student benefit, it is important that all the benefits we offer are useful and valuable from a student’s perspective. Thus, the benefits should appeal to as large a proportion as possible of the students at Mälardalen’s University.
Mälardalen Student Union wants to be able to give students at Mälardalen University as many chances as possible to make contacts for the future. For you as a company, this means that it is possible to book different forms of events and activities through us.
On campuses in Eskilstuna and Västerås we have our Kårtorg that companies can rent. In connection with a visit, you can choose to add tables, chairs and also order coffee or snacks from our café to your stand.
If you would rather hold a presentation, lecture or other type of event in the morning, breakfast events are also offered.
The most requested type of event that we offer is lunch lectures. It has long been known that students love free stuff. In connection with a lecture or a company presentation, we therefore offer tasty and filling lunch baguettes from the café in union house G6 or union house J3. The event is held over lunch and therefore rarely clashes with other lectures or seminars.
Night time events at the union house
In Mälardalen’s Student Union’s buildings there are several different options. For example, if you would like to organize a case evening with a taco buffet, a presentation or a larger event with stage opportunities we have unique premises that are suitable for both smaller and larger events.
Thrugh collaboration with Mälardalen’s University, we at Mälardalen’s Student Union arrange several fairs. It gives students a unique opportunity to mingle with several different companies, unions and other traders.
Our annual work fair Högvarv is one of our oldest projects and has existed in one form or another since 1990. The fair is organized in Västerås and usually takes place at the end of February. The fair is attended by around fifty companies from different industries. Read more about the fair here!
In addition to the Högvarv work fair, we also have smaller fairs. Our intro fairs are organized in both Eskilstuna and Västerås at the start of every semester. Their purpose is to inform and welcome new students to campus. At the fair there are a limited number of spots and we would like your company to primarily benefit students who are at the beginning of their studies. Those who usually attend these fairs are line associations, student associations and the University’s departments such as the Student Health Service. Unions and discount providers usually participate to reach out to new students at the University.
