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 since. Originally founded as Maastrichtse Studentenraad, in 2020 it was renamed 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.
