As the University’s co-participation body, it is the role of the University Council to keep a critical eye on and advise the Executive Board and in some cases to participate in decisions regarding important matters. The Council has sixteen members, half of whom are elected by and from among the students and half by and from among the staff.


In preparation for a number of large-scale and/or long-term projects, the University Council has appointed the following committees:

  • Education & Research
  • Finance & Housing
  • Personnel Policy, Student Affairs and Internationalisation
