SSCO has around 40 member unions. In total, SSCO represents around 85,000 students. It is thus not the student as an individual who is a member of SSCO. To become a member of one of SSCO’s member unions you first need to be registered as a student at the higher education institution where the student union is active. SSCO does not handle membership for individual students. Any membership issues should be handled through the student union at your higher education institution.

It is the responsibility of each member union to provide SSCO with updated contact details for those who are in charge of the member union, to submit member reports (usually in May), and to register all members in Membit.

Through membership, the student unions support SSCO’s work to improve the situation for Stockholm students. Membership of SSCO also means that the member union and its members gain access to the services SSCO offer. These services include, among other things, training for active student union members as well as the possibility for the member unions’ members to reside in SSSB’s student accommodations. SSCO also runs the subletting intermediary agency Akademisk kvart, aimed at students in the Stockholm region and working for a subletting market with reasonable terms for students.

Current basic requirements for membership in SSCO:

  • The student union has its registered office in the Stockholm region;
  • The student union is democratically structured;
  • The student union is operative;
  • The student union shall have no less than 15 members and shall have admission requirements for them; and
  • The student union shall have been approved student union status by its higher education institution.

Application documents and further information about membership and applications can be found here (Swedish only).
