SSCO was founded in 1896 and is a member organisation for student unions in the Stockholm region. SSCO currently has around 40 member unions and through them represent over 90,000 students.
SSCO has three main missions:
To protect and develop Stockholm as Sweden’s leading place of education
SSCO continuously work towards municipalities, county councils and Parliament to improve the situation for Stockholm’s students and develop Stockholm as a place for education. Through raising student related questions with politicians and other decision makers, as well as working to ensure existing member organisations remain active, SSCO work to ensure long-term student influence in the region. To further promote actions to improve Stockholm as a student city, SSCO has since 2002 handed out the Friend of Stockholm’s Students award to organisations, companies, groups or people who all in some way have made efforts for Stockholm’s students and student unions.
To offer meeting points for the students and student unions from the Stockholm region
Through the subsidiary Studentpalatset AB, SSCO is responsible for the running of Studentpalatset by Odenplan. At Studentpalatset students from the five major universities in Stockholm (the universities who have chosen to be part of the collaboration) are offered a quiet study environment with over 300 spaces and 18 group rooms. There are also meeting rooms in Studentpalatset that SSCO’s member unions may use free of charge.
To provide a joint service for students in the Stockholm region
SSCO provides a joint service for the students in the Stockholm region by way of for example student housing though SSSB and the subletting intermediary agency Akademisk kvart. Akademisk kvart is open for all students in the Stockholm region to use, but to live and queue with SSSB you need to be a member of an SSCO-affiliated student union.
