Who We Are

MSU offers membership to both students and organisations. Becoming a member allows for you to attend membership meetings, partake in committees, and help create a change here in Maastricht.


The Maastricht Student Union was founded by the merging of two other student unions more than a decade ago and has been advocating for student interests in Maastricht ever since. Originally founded as Maastrichtse Studentenraad, it was renamed in 2020 as Maastricht Student Union to reflect the international community within Maastricht.


MSU is an association which aims to give a voice to the student population of Maastricht in all matters concerning student life. The union works to represent all students by working with UM and Zuyd Hogeschool, the municipality, and other third parties to ensure that students’ interests are always represented. MSU also partners with LSVb (a national student union) to ensure that Maastricht students have a voice in the national level too.



Here are some of our partners.

MSU strives to maintain a reputation and an image of non-partisanship in
order to work with all political parties (in and outside of UM) for the best
interests of our students.
