The Senate is comprised of a representative from each undergraduate department, each undergraduate year, and each graduate program. Senators represent their constituents in Senate meetings and to faculty and the administration. Senators vote on important university-wide issues, including the allocation of the general student activities budget of approximately €100,000 per year.

Class representatives are elected by their class, while departmental and program senators are elected by students in their respective areas of study.

Senate meetings and minutes

In order to maintain transparency, Senate meetings are open for all students to attend, and minutes are taken, reviewed, and posted for the general student body. Meetings are held every Wednesday during period three throughout the academic year. Come and hear the deliberations or contribute your own opinions to the discussion.
