Don't hope for it, vote for it!

Dear students,

If you want to improve student welfare at Maastricht University, join NovUM!
We have been a student representation party at UM since 2003. Progressive, inNOVative, international, our formula has remained the same: we represent you in the university and faculty councils, and strive for what you believe in.

We have been the fastest growing party since 2021: we have been the only party representing you in all councils since 2021 and, in the 2022 elections, we were the only party to gain votes and seats. We are now the 3rd most popular party at UM.  Together, we strive for change: from improving healthcare and administrative support to international students, to making UM provide and strive for more accessible housing, to implementing a sustainability minor in each and every faculty. If you believe in a better UM, join us!

Learn more about how you can get involved (check out the menu at the top of our website) and our vision.
