Exceptional rules for re-recognition in 2020/21 (= existing associations from 2019/20):

Due to the COVID-19 situation, the organization of events and, consequently, recruiting in associations was made extremely difficult.

Therefore, some of the association’s board members can exceptionally be alumni of our University from the board 2019/20 (less than 50%). However, the positions of president and vice-president have to be occupied by enrolled students.

This ruling only applies to existing associations from 2019/20. New associations have to be composed entirely of enrolled students.

General important remark on insurance coverage

As students of the University of Luxembourg, you are covered by the civil liability (responsabilité civile) and by the CNS as individuals (since this is a prerequisite for the enrolment at the University).

However, you are not covered when organising an event as an association. In that case, you should take out a civil liability insurance as an A.S.B.L. Upon request, the University can ask for a coverage proposal through its own insurance provider but the costs would then have to be taken over by the association. 

It is not mandatory to take out such an insurance but for your own safety, we recommend you to take out a civil liability insurance if you intend to organise events as a student association.
