The Student Union of the University of St. Gallen (SHSG) acts as an universal supporter, provides services and represents the interests of the students. The students perceive it as their official institution of representation. As an official subentity of the university the Student Union aligns its actions to serve the students' current and future needs and delivers those to the universitary field in a proactive way.




As the Students’ Union of the University of St. Gallen (SHSG), we represent both the interests of the entire student community as well as offer services in all domains of the university’s life. We represent the students’ current interests as well as lasting concerns, in close collaboration with all of the university’s stakeholders. Seeing things from the students perspective, we detect and transmit potential for the university's further development.
Aside from the services we offer in the study-sector, we also coordinate student associations and lead resource intensive, large-scale projects. We equally provide assistance to projects in the first stages of their development, as long as they are in the interest of the majority of the students and remain accessible to them. Furthermore, the Student Union is an attractive place for student involvement and acts a driver of innovative ideas.
