The Ghent Student Council is the central student council of Ghent University. The Ghent Student Council represents and defends the interests of the students. The topics range from all affairs concerning education (Education and Examination code, special status for students …) as well as social affairs (housing, student restaurants …) and many other topics. The list of topics is quite diverse and is not limited to the aforementioned.
However, the Ghent Student Council is not solely active on the university level. As well as supporting the Faculty Student Councils of which there are eleven, the Ghent Student Council is also active on both the municipal and Flemish level. Finally, the Ghent Student Council supports several smaller and a few big projects such as the Fietsambassade, the Student Kick-Off and Zeus WPI.
