Work Environment and Equal Opportunities

Do you and your peers feel that the air quality in the lecture halls is bad? Are the lamps in the group rooms not working? Is it difficult to travel between your home and the university? Do you feel badly or unfairly treated by the examiner? StuFF makes sure that these issues are dealt with!

What is the Work Environment?

The work environment for students is about the conditions on our campuses. We need to ensure a good work environment so that everyone can enjoy the university. When talking about the work environment, one usually distinguishes between the physical, organisational and social conditions.


The Physical Work Environment

The physical work environment pertains to issues with the buildings and environments that are used for educational purposes. Examples of problems with the physical work environment may be noise, poor ventilation or lightning, problems with the temperature or hazardous routes to and from the university. With regard to the physical work
environment, StuFF strives for more microwave ovens, more study places and keeping the lecture halls well-maintained, among other issues. The three Student Unions at LiU together provide study places through our Union Houses; [HG], Kollektivet and Trappan.


The Organisational and Social Work Environment

The organisational and social work environment pertains to risks that may affect the mental and physical health. This concerns both social issues and work organisation. Examples of problems with the organisational and social work environment may be unreasonable time pressure, an excessive workload, unclear tasks or bullying. StuFF works primarily preventively regarding the organisational and social work environment, in order to make as many students as possible able to enjoy their studies at Linköping University.

The Student Health Care Center (Studenthälsan) offers advice and support if you suffer from issues with your mental or physical health. At the Student Health Care Center you can find professionals that will help you with various issues. The Center offers workshops, lectures and counseling. You can read more about The Center in the Health and Support section.


Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities is an initiative at LiU that aims to promote gender equality, ethnic and religious diversity, accessibility and participation for people with disabilities, sexual equality and equal treatment regardless of age or gender identity and gender expression. The work also applies to other offensive treatment and harassment. The
Student Representative for Work Environment and Equal Opportunities at StuFF is cooperating with the Coordinator for Equal Opportunities at LiU and can help you if you have felt offended during your time at the University. You can read more about Equal Opportunities at their website.
