The operation and rules of the student union are subject to the Universities Act and the government decree on universities (770/2009).

The Universities Act 558/2009, Section 46, subsection 1: “A student union consists of the students of a university and is self-governing. The student union liaises with and on behalf of its members and promotes their societal, social and intellectual aspirations and those relating to studies and the status of students in society. The student union also participates in the implementation of the educational mission of the university, referred to in section 2, by preparing students for an active, informed and critical citizenship.”

The student union decides on its own rules and other standing orders and terms of reference, which are approved by the Council of Representatives. In addition to these, the student union has various plans and permanent decisions concerning diverse matters.
