Representative bodies
There are three representative bodies at Maastricht University; the University Council, the Faculty Councils and Service Councils. In May 2017 elections will take place for the University Council, the Faculty Councils and the Service Councils.  In the following sections you will find a short summary of the representative bodies.

The University Council
The central representative body at the UM, the University Council, consists of 6 representatives from academic staff section (WP), 3 from the administrative and support staff (OBP) and 9 from the student section. Employees are elected as Council members for a term of two years; students serve a term of one year.

Faculty Councils
In addition, each faculty has its own Faculty Council, which also consists of the three sections, WP, OBP and students. The size of the councils varies from faculty to faculty. Here too, staff members are elected for a term of two years and student members serve a term of one year.

Service Councils
There are separate representative bodies for administrative and support staff working in the Maastricht University Office and the service centers, the so-called Service Councils (six altogether). The members are elected for a term of 2 years.
