VIDIUS was found in June 2011 as a result of a merger between three foundations: OOFU, LinQ and USF Student Interests. OOFU was the advocate of all study associations of Utrecht University. LinQ was an organization that supported student participation on the UU and USF Student Interests was the union for all students of Utrecht University and the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht.
Since September 2010, the former boards of these organizations were in conversation about closer co-operation. This consultation lead to the wish for a far-reaching integration and that is why they constituted a control group that investigated the possibilities of a merger in December 2010. Eventually, on June 15 2011, it was decided by the General Assembly of Members of USF Student Interests to move to an economical fusion with as a result: VIDIUS Student Union.
