With great pleasure and honour, I would like to welcome you to the United Nations Student Association (UNSA) Maastricht!

We are an academic and non-profit organisation situated in the heart of Maastricht’s student life- by students, for students. Our members are diverse both in their country of origin as well as in their studies, which makes us one of the most international as well as inter-facular associations of Maastricht.

With the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as a guide, we are working towards bringing the UN spirit to all students of UM by organising free workshops, panel debates and lectures, as well as career fairs such as our Career Beyond Borders week.

We also organise one of the biggest Model United Nations conferences, EuroMUN, with over 500 participants, and send out delegations to other MUN’s all over the world. Are you more of a writer and less of a debater? Join our journal committee, which has a lively blog about all sorts of contemporary topics as well as a printed edition three times a year.

If you are more interested in development aid, we provide you with a platform to help out with raising funds for our numerous partner NGO’s, but also to go abroad as a volunteer yourself.

In short: Do you want to improve your debating and public-speaking skills? Do you like organising or attending academic events as well as our socials such as parties and the annual charity ball? Are you enthusiastic about development work? Are you enjoying journalism or photography? Even if you only answered one question with a “yes” I am delighted to tell you that you have come to the right place.


Have a look at this website and join the UNSA family!

Looking forward to meeting you soon,

Alice Nesselrode,

President of UNSA Maastricht
