Café Mitum

The Student Union runs a café, Mitum, located in the heart of the MIT-building. Mitum serves a daily lunch and is the obvious place for a cup of coffee between lectures. Take the opportunity to work voluntarily in Mitum. The voluntary heroes that work in Mitum get a good qualification and experience, and that they may have access to a number of privileges and activities. New friends and a lovely sense of community is just a bonus. Do you want to try working in Mitum? Contact fik@ntk.umu.se.

Career Day(s) Uniaden

Uniaden is a yearly career day and one of the biggest events at Umeå University. It is organized through a cooperation between NTK and HHUS (Student association at the Umeå School of Business and Economics), PLUM (Student association for human resources students) and UMSYS (student association for those who study system science or digital media production). Uniaden gives students the possibility to get an overview of the job market, and companies an opportunity to meet future employees and get an idea of the resources currently available at the university. It is not only a job fair but a great arrangement with preparatory events, guest lectures, discussions and talks, and many other activities. Uniaden provides a platform where students and companies can establish long-term and personal contacts, and allows you as a company to meet technologists, natural scientists, design students, economists, social scientists and human resource specialists.


The student magazine Vertex is owned by NTK and Umeå studentkår. It examines the activity of the student unions and explores the student life in Umeå.
