Welcome to the International Committee (IntU Gefle)

Joel, Jonathan and Patrik – founders of IntU Gefle.

Who are IntU Gefle?

IntU Gefle is one of Gefle Student Unions committees and focuses on our international friends, both exchange students and free movers. The committee was founded by three swedish students who felt that the international students didn’t have a space in our student life in the same way that swedish students had, and wanted that to change. So here we are! From IntU Gefle you can expect a warm welcome, fun events and trips, showing the best of swedish culture and student life.

Be sure to download the app hitract to find information about all our events as well everything else happening in the student life here at the University of Gefle!
