The governing body of Student Union TUO is the representative body which consists of 31 representatives. Representatives are elected every November and begin work January 1st of the following year. Representatives’ term is one calendar year. Each member of the Student Union is eligible to run for the representative body and has a vote in the elections.

The representative body’s mission is to determine how TUO’s resources (such as time and money) are used. The representative body monitors and guides the board’s work.

It is task of the group leader to promote the flow of information between the representatives’ president & vice-president and its own group. The group leader also can lead his group by arranging group meetings.

Student organizations at TUAS work together with the Student Union to improve the level of education offered in the various fields at TUAS. Student organizations have student representatives that represent the students of their field in, for example, degree meetings.

Student associations may have connections to trade unions and/or the professional field.
