Student Council

The Student Council is the advocate of all University of Iceland students and handles cases regarding student interests in relation to University authorities, the government and others that influence the policies of the University.

The Student Council was established in 1920 and has ever since fought for the interests of students and various improvements in the University community. The role of the Student Council is complex; e.g. it serves as the students' interest organisation and deals with any issues that are of concern to students.

The Student Council is the voice of students, both internally and externally, and is involved in many issues within the University. The Student Council also publishes the Student Paper, organises the social agenda, and attends to issues within the University relating to interests, equality, and rights.
