What is the Working Environment?
In this case, the work environment is about the conditions on our campuses. For everyone to enjoy the university, the work environment needs to be good. When talking about the work environment, one usually distinguishes between the physical and the psychosocial work environment.
The Physical Work Environment
Examples of problems with the physical work environment may be noise, poor ventilation or poor lightning, or hazardous routes to and from the university. With regard to the physical work environment, the Student Union strives for i.e. more microwave ovens, more study places and keeping the lecture halls well-maintained. For example, we provide study places through our Union houses Kollektivet and Trappan.
The Psychosocial Work Environment
The psychosocial work environment is about what creates risks to mental health. This concerns, for example, the mental well-being and leadership. Examples of problems with the psychosocial work environment may be time pressure, an excessive workload or unclear tasks. Regarding the psychosocial work environment the student union's work is primarily preventative, in order to make as many people as possible able to enjoy their studies at Linköping University.
If you suffer from mental health, The Student Health Care Center(Studenthälsan) is supportive and offers counseling / counseling with curators, physiotherapists, doctoral nurses, conversational coach and dyslexia teacher.
