Types of Membership

Forever union member -  500 SEK

For those who are a registered student at Södertörn University and read an individual course or program, but want to be a member of the union as long as you are a student at the university. This membership includes ten semesters, which means you can take a study break and still be a member when you are a student at Södertörn next time. Also, with this membership you do not have to keep track of when it ends, because you are forever a member of the union!

One year membership - 240 SEK

Make sure you enjoy the benefits of being a member for a whole year. Purchase your membership today to stay involved in the student movement! 

One semester membership - 125 SEK

This is ideal for those students who are only studying one term at Södertörn University, or for those of you who want to get a feel for what it’s like being a SöderS member. This will give you access to all the membership benefits, such as discounts in the SöderS pub, the SöderS Secondhand bookshop or for SöderS’ events. 

Support membership - 400 SEK

If you're not a student at Södertörn University you can still support our activities. The support membership does not grant you the same benefits as the valid union membership. The support membership is for one semester.

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 study nights, parties and pub nights.

Using the money collected from our membership fee, SöderS is able to offer support to the students at the university, support the member associations, arrange member benefits and discounts and much more.

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 

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
