The Introduction is a way for you to meet your classmates, other students, the university and its campus, and Borås. Through seatings, games, and parites you will experience everything that a student life in Borås has to offer, and as a new student you will always be welcome. The Introduction is also a way to prepare for your studies, through lunch-lectures, meet and greets and campus tour where you will meet all of the student centered functions.

The first day

On the first day of the semester you will get to meet the Vice chancelor, go on a campus tour and get to meet, see and listen to most of the university, so that you are prepared for your studies. As we receive 1700 new students you will have a specific starting point on the day for your program. Eat a stable breakfast and prepare for a very intense first day with a lot of new meetings and information. You can find the schedule for your program on Kronox.

The student buddy

During the Introduction you will meet your Student Buddy. They wear a yellow,red, or blue t-shirt depending on which section the student buddy belongs to. The Student buddy is a current student at the uni who have take on the responseblility to introduce you to everything new and to help you find your place in Borås. If you have questions or thoughts about your time as a student here, ask your student buddy! Their job is to create a stable and safe place for you as a new students, and to support you during the start of your student life.

The Introduction Bracelet

During your first day you will get a introduction bracelet from your student buddy. This bracelet will be our way of identifying you as a new student. The bracelet will be your ticket to all of the Introduction, so don’t remove it until the Introduction is finished! If you need to remove the bracelet because of work or similar things you can tell us in the union reception before you take it of, and they will sort you out with a new one. If you remove it, lose it or anything similar without telling us, you can buy a new bracelet in the union reception for 20kr.

The sections and Colors

The Student Union of Borås consists of three different sections. Novitas (red) which is our section for Textile, Engineering and Business students. Humanitas (blue) which is our section for Caring Science, Work Life and Social Welfare. And Scientias (yellow) which is our section for Librarianship, Information, Education and IT. As a union member you will be sorted into the section which corresponds to your program. You will know which section the student buddy belongs to by the color of the shirt.

Association clubs

Vid Högskolan i Borås så har vi ett antal olika föreningar. Det finns två olika typer av föreningar. Intresseföreningar vars medlemmar förs samman kring ett gemensamt syfte, till exempel dans så som i Dancetastic. Och sociala föreningar, som vars syfte är att umgås och ofta festa tillsammans. Den senare brukar vara mer programlåst än intresseföreningarna. Borås föreningsmedlemmar bär oftast ovveraller i olika färger, där varje förening har sin färg, dekorerade med märken. Ser du en fadder i en ovve under Introduktionen så är den personen medlem i en förening och därför perfekt att bombadera med frågor kring vad du kan göra under din studietid i Borås!


At the university of Borås we have a couple of different association clubs. There are two main types of association clubs. Interest-clubs whos members come together through a specific purpose, e.g. Dancetastic who dance together. The second type are the social clubs, who come together to spend time with each other, do different social activities and throw the bigger parties together. The club members of Borås usually wear overalls of different colors, where each club has their color, usually decorated with different badges and patches. If your student buddy is wearing and overall they are a member of a club, so take the chance to ask which club and what they do! You will be able to meet our association club on the 13 of September when we arrange an Association club conference.
