''...the economic and social support and assistance of students of state universities, particularly in terms of the establishment and running of child-care facilities, student accommodation and student catering, as well as providing access to institutions concerned with culture and social activities. Within its realm of responsibilities, the student union should seek to promote and support international relationships''
