Stockholm University Student Union (SUS) is one of Sweden’s largest student unions with about 15 000 members per term. The Stockholm University Student Union was founded in 1883 at what would later become Stockholm University.
We are a non-profit member organization and we constantly strive to give our members the best possible service and the best conditions to succeed and thrive in their studies at Stockholm University.
SUS has a permanent staff of about 10 employees and 25 elected student representatives. We work actively to represent student’s best interests through disseminating information, education and lobbying university, municipality and county organizations and representatives and by supporting local student councils at the university, but also through local, personable services for our members.
In May of each year, the Student Union Election is held for all members. In the election different union parties compete to get as many of the 41 Representative Assembly seats as possible. The Representative Assembly determines, among other things, who shall be the President and Vice President of the Student Union.
