Welcome to a new semester!

Konstkåren is the platform for the students at Academy of Music and Drama (HSM), the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) and the Valand Academy to organize themselves in important matters regarding their education and social environment. 

We hope that you will enjoy your studies and have a great year at Gothenburg University 2016-17! We are planing a lot of different activites during the first weeks of the semester. Keep an eye open for posters and information on the billboards for the different sections!

Don't forget to renew your membership!

Did you know that you get three months extra queue time at SGS Studentbostäder when you sign up for a membership, and one extra month every time you renew it? You will find the links for both new members and for renewing an ongoing membership on our website.
