Mecenat is a nationwide company that works to collect all student discounts to make your life as a student a little easier. As a member, you get access to national discounts (such as e.g. student price at SJ, SL) once you get your Mecenat card.
Mecenat memberships are usually updated every semester, but PhD students membership covers a whole academic year at a time. This difference leads to errors in the first edition and renewal of Mecenat cards for some PhD students.
If you experience problems with getting or renewing your Mecenat card:
You have to manually ask for and renew your Mecenat card every semester by contacting Mecenat and Teknologkåren.
