ESN Södertörn is a local section of ESN Sweden, which in turn is a part of ESN International. ESN Södertörn is also a society under the umbrella of SöderS, the Student Union at Södertörn University.

SöderS is the Student Union at Södertörn University. SöderS was established in 1996 and is an organisation that lobbies for a high quality, dynamic, fair and trustworthy university education as well as a vibrant and fun campus environment. SöderS continuously aims to be a transparent and sustainable student organisation.

Why should you become a member?

SöderS is here to help. We want all students to get the support they need in addressing any challenges at Södertörn University. We strive to uphold a comfortable and social environment at the university, whilst providing the opportunity for all students to combine their studies with activities such as parties, sport tournaments and pub nights.

Thanks to all our engaged and hardworking members, SöderS currently has around 15 societies! As a member, you can start your own society and seek financial backing to make the most out of your time as a student!

Using the money collected from our membership fee, SöderS is able to employ staff that can offer support to the students at the university. This could be regarding questions about the education or judicial advice concerning issues such as student rights, fair treatment and equality at the university. 

Due to that so many students are members of SöderS, we have the opportunity to offer exciting discounts each semester to our members.

Once you have paid your membership fee, SöderS will not be able to refund you. Therefore, if you either discontinue your studies or if you don’t register at Södertörn University, your membership will be transferred to a ‘support membership’. If you are unsure if you currently are a member, or if your membership payment went through, please contact us on [email protected]

Please do not forget that to become a SöderS member, or to renew your membership, you must have completed the following criteria: received a letter of acceptance from Södertörn University, attended your roll call and be registered to an education (programme or class/es). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us on [email protected].
