How do we communicate and what should you do to stay updated with all upcoming events and announcements?

As soon as you have purchased your membership on Kide.App, you can join our private Facebook group Jalot Villit. That's our main communications channel, and you will not miss out on anything as long as you follow what's going on in the group - we'll be posting all our events and other important information there!

Our public Instagram @jalotvillit is very active, and that's where we share a lot of information about interdisciplinary events as well, so make sure to follow! 

Our website holds mainly permanent information, as well as some links to events. However, we host a lot of small and informal events that do not get posted on our website, only on our social media. 

If you are not on social media, make sure to check you're receiving our weekly newsletter. The weekly newsletter is sent every Monday by e-mail to all members who have agreed to getting e-mail from us on Kide.App. If you are not receiving your weekly newsletter, please contact us at!

The traditional student outfit

It's traditional for Scandinavian university students to wear student overalls to events. All student associations have different color overalls - ours is a beautiful "police blue"!

In order to receive the overalls, you first must be a member of Jalot Villit. After that you're going to have to pay close attention to Jalot Villit social media as well as your tutors telling you when it's time to join the overalls order.

Overalls are ordered only once a year, so they can not be bought later on. You must be active and participate in the ordering process. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the overalls representatives of the Jalot Villit board!
