Why should I join?

As a member of Student Union TUO you are entitled to many member benefits.

TUO offers its members discounts and cheaper tickets to events. TUO’s staff and harassment contact people should you face troubles in your student life. There is also free legal council available, in case you need advice about employment, renting an apartment, or marriage and domestic partnership.

Being a member means all this and much more:

  • TUO is there for you from the start of your studies until the end. TUO’s advisers will help you, should you encounter troubles such as late grades or inappropriate behavior during your studies.
  • Member discount tickets to TUO’s events and discounts when buying TUO’s products, such as overall patches.

  • You get the chance to make an impact: all members have a vote and can run for office in the student union council election.
  • At the moment, TUO represents over 5.000 TUAS students. The more of us there are, the louder TUO can speak for all TUAS students and the more seriously TUO’s opinions are taken in local decision-making!

Digital membership card

When you join TUO, you get a digital membership card on the app or Pivo app (if you have TUPAS).
