Mentor Program for students

Get an insight into life after graduation – learn from alumni through our mentor program

The aim of the mentor program is to give you as a student inspiration for your future career. Your mentor will be a former student, i.e. an alumnus/alumna of KTH, with experiences and personal knowledge of how life after graduation can be. He/she may have a different educational background. Mentoring is about asking questions, listening, reflecting and discovering new perspectives. As a mentee in the program, you are expected to meet up with your mentor four times, of which two meetings are together with the other participants. The mentors and mentees will plan the other two meetings on their own. Please contact [email protected] should you have any questions.

Register before 14 March 2021.

You can buy 100kr worth of food to eat during the meeting. However, you can only buy ready-made meals from, for example, a restaurant or grocery store. It is not allowed to buy ingredients for meals. You get your money back for the food by going to cashflow and registering it as an expense. We recommend that you buy food so that you receive the original receipt in digital format, as the receipt then doesn't need to be inserted in the receipt folder. Put the expense on the budget item "Centralt > Sektionsmöte > Mat, dricka och fika". Please note that if you do not attend the meeting, you will not get your money back. In order for you to get money back, you must also buy the food on the same day as the meeting takes place. Do not hesitate to contact the D-directorate if you have any questions!

New rules for META during the pandemic

Hi all Chapter Members!

Due to the new Pandemic law and restrictions, the following decisions have been made by KTH and THS.

  • New opening hours for META is between 8-22.
  • New maximum capacity for META is 26 persons.
  • The furniture arrangement will be adapted to this as soon as possible, please do not rearrange.
  • The premise is open for study purposes only, not for Chapter activities.

There is also some updated information regarding Nymble and THS from THS President Charley:

Events:

  • We will continue having no events in Nymble or Osqvik.
  • The previous rule about administrators for crucial democratic meetings being allowed to book rooms in Nymble is no longer in effect.

Public areas in Nymble:

  • Nymble, the Bookstore and the Restaurant will still be open, but with new updated safety information posted around the building and even stricter restrictions in the number of seats and tables in their respective areas.
  • Only 4 people per table is allowed, and we ask that people do not move any furniture. If you happen to be in Nymble we ask that we all help out to remind people of these restrictions when necessary. For example, if you see a table with too many people, ask them to move apart.
  • KårX will continue to be physically open only Monday-Wednesday, but will still be reachable by phone: 08-790 98 51 and by mail: [email protected] during their regular office hours.
  • THS Café is closed and the Restaurant will instead be open 9-15 for the foreseeable future. Lunch will still be served as usual in the restaurant, with some extension of its supply in order to offer what THS Café usually does.
  • We will regularly evaluate the situation and the above is subject to change.

What do we know right now about KTH?

  • KTH library will open again on January 25th.
  • Study places are kept open as usual.

Take care of yourself and those around you <3
