Student Union and Student Services
SKh had three student unions that are independent non-profit associations. SKH's unified student unions (a collaborative body for the local student unions) have as their primary task to guard the students' interests, promote student influence and represent the students on the university board and the university's overall bodies. SKH attaches great importance to the participation of the students to influence the development of the university. Contact the student union at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you need student housing?
Join the student union and you will have a chance to get a home with the Stockholm Student Housing Foundation, Stockholms Studentbostäder (SSSB).

Student and Mecenate cards
There are two different cards that act as discount and benefit cards and student IDs for those studying at a university in Sweden: the Student Card and the Mecenat Card. The cards give you various discounts and benefits at a number of companies across the country.
If you have a student grant from CSN, you do not need a certificate to obtain the Mecenat card. However, you who do not have study funding from CSN need a certificate to be able to order the card.

As a student, you are insured for accidents that arise in connection with the teaching or trips to and from SKH. Stockholm Student Health Service (Studenthälsan) offers medical and psychological counseling as a complement to other health care. Student health prioritises problems related to the study situation.

The program courses and courses of at least three weeks give you the right to apply for study funding from CSN. Forms and rules are available at csn.se.
Note! In your application you must state your program, not your orientation.
If you want to be vacant for a longer period, you must apply for study breaks. The application form is available on the intranet. The application for study breaks is processed by your head of department.

Equal terms - functional variance, harassment and active measures
SKH's vision is to be a non-discrimination workplace and place of study in which people meet on equal terms in an environment where diversity is an important factor for future development and deeper quality. By actively and consciously including everyone to participate in the university on equal terms, conditions are created for future knowledge and social development.
