Chalmers Studentkårs Øhlhäfvarförening.
CAC is a popular science student union society in space technology and astronomy.
It is open mainly for students at Chalmers and Gothenburg University but also for non student members. CAC arranges, several times per study period, so called space evenings. Every space evening, there is an interesting seminar by a scientist in an area of space technology or astronomy. It is kept on a basic level so that anyone can understand. After the seminar we show a space documentary or a science fiction movie. Throughout our space evenings we also serve free popcorn, sell drinks, chocolate bars and our special space sandwiches to a very small price.
A couple of times per year CAC arrange visits to different research institutions and space companies, for instance Volvo Aero Corporation, Kiruna Esrange and Onsala Space Observatory.
Furthermore CAC arranges parties, space pubs and dinners.
Membership costs 40 SEK and includes free entrance to our space evenings and possibility to participate in our field trips, parties, etc. Easiest way to solve membership is to show up at one of our activities and pay (cash) there.

As usual the season ends with the Nordic Student Championship, which this year is organized by LiU in Linköping. Five teams from three nations get together to compete for the title "Scandinavia's best student team".

Exercise for body and soul; exercise for everyone! We gladly welcome all those that want to practice karate with us in the Student Union building on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Karate is a very versatile and fun form of exercise. No matter what previous experiences you have or lack, your sex, age or physical shape, we welcome both students and non-students.
A karate workout is similar to other group exercise forms such as spinning, body pump or step. We start off each semester with two weeks of “trial practice”, where all the good stuff that is karate is presented in an easy and fun way. However, we welcome beginners continuously during the whole year round. We practice karate without shoes, so in the beginning all you need is training pants, t-shirt and a water bottle.
Chalmers Christian Group is an association that is open to anyone who wants to be in a Christian community at school. We meet regularly to talk, pray and eat lunch together.

Very welcome if you have questions or just want to hang out!

Chalmers Choir is the oldest and largest Student Association. Since 1870 the choir has sung at many different occasions at Chalmers University of Technology, for example at Walpurgis celebrations and the Student Unions mösspåtagningar.
In the beginning there was a crowd of merry men who sang in Chalmers Choir, the Men's choir. As the years passed, it became more common with female students, and soon women desired to sing in the choir, and so in 1964 the mixed Chamber choir started.
The interest for the Choir grew further and eventually even the chamber choir became too big. Later the ladies also wanted to have their very own choir and in 1987 the Women's choir was created.
In addition to appearances at Chalmers, we organize annual Christmas concerts at Vasa Church and also attend during Lucia.
Each fall and spring, we admit new choristers, so do not hesitate to apply if you want to join the choir!

CSS is a student organization with the purpose of engaging Chalmers students and PHd's in issues related to sustainability, thereby enhancing Chalmers’ impact on the field of sustainability through student contributions.
The projects we engage in depend on the ideas of our members and we are always open for collaborations. Some of our most recent projects have been the biketour through Sweden - Cykelsamba and the national series of lectures - The Reflecting Engineer. Two summers in a row, CSS has handed out 100 free bikes on Teknologgården.
A unique characteristic is the creative and multinational atmosphere among the CSS members. Members have biked to Kenya to build a biogas system for a school, traveled the world to explore how we can build in a more sustainable way, and finally, had a coffee with former general secretary Kofi Annan.
Do you want to dance, entertain, make friends, go on tour and have lots of fun?
The Chalmers ballet is a group of students who entertain with show dance at parties and other events such as openings and graduation ceremonies. Occasionally we also do stage shows. At least twice every year we go to student band festivals around Sweden and northern Europe. Of course we also take part in Cortégen where we march to the sound of the Alliance orchestra.
Our activities are mainly in Swedish but do not let that scare you; there is always somebody who can translate.
If you think this sound like fun you should come to our trial practices on Mondays at 19.30 in the gymnasium in the Student union building at Johanneberg. We hold trial practises during study week 2-5 of the autumn term. There are no prerequisites and you can come in regular training gear. You do not have to come to all trial practises but the more you attend the more fun it is!
Chalmers Motor Club is a non-profit society with students, staff and alumni interested in vehicle- and engine-technology.
We are a club of members interested in vehicle engineering and use.

All members have access to, besides the working areas, some welding machines, compressed air, lathe, sandblast-box, tools, lift, waste-handling, engine crane, trailer, electricity and lights, toilet, coffee room etc.
The lift is rented by the day.
Members can also rent a parking lot outdoors with a discount.
