As many of you already know, the UHSK has started a project this year called ‘UHSK-Couchsurfing’. With this project, the UHSK tries to help members without a room in Utrecht to nightly UHSK-activities, like the Fecoparties. Members without a place to stay in Utrecht can contact us via e-mail where after we post a message in a closed Facebookgroup with all people who offer a couch to sleep on.
The project is going well and we’ve already managed to find a sleeping spot for some people. However, we are still looking for more people who would like to offer a place to stay from time to time to roomless fellow UHSK-members. Your participation is completely non-binding, which means you are free of obligations. The only thing we do is put you in a closed Facebookgroup and contact you when there’s someone looking for a place to stay. Are you that good Samaritan and would you like to help your fellow UHSK-members to a place to sleep? Then send an e-mail to email@example.com so we can put you in the Couchsurfing-Facebookgroup.

The Beeldcommissie has started off the new year with a progressive initiative. Where requests for posters and photographers where always made on paper, it is now possible to request posters, video's and photographers online! By doing so, the BeCo can deal with requests faster and promotion by committees will be even more efficient.
The link for this online form can be found by logging in and looking under 'Members' and click 'Documents'. This will lead you to the Dutch version of the UHSK-website, where the link can be found under 'Beco: online aanvraagformulier'.READ MORE
