Cognatio is a young and entrepreneurial student association founded in 2005. The underlying idea is to create an affiliation between students. The name Cognatio stands for 'affiliation'.

Cognatio is a national student association with more than 900 active members. The association is located in six different cities in the Netherlands: Hengelo, Eindhoven, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Utrecht and since 2021 also Groningen. Each location is known for its unique activities. For example, Utrecht has the well-attended get-togethers in their regular pub and Amsterdam the famous pub crawls. Besides drinks and parties, a lot of other activities are organized as well, like trips and networking drinks.

The association is managed by a national board with a separate board for each location under it, which makes the relationship between the board and its members very personal and friendly.
