What do you want to do?

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of students, or are theatre evenings more your thing? Do you want to get in shape?

At Soc&kom, everyone can find an association that suits them. In addition to discipline-specific student organisations there are a range of hobby clubs. The StudOrg sports team is dubbed Lokomotiv Soc&kom, and it participates in the University’s futsal tournaments, etc. Every Wednesday, StudOrg members train together at Unisport.

StudOrg is a student organisation which protects the interests of its members in higher education policy and organises a programme for all students.

StudOrg’s programme features parties and other events, such as theatre and film excursions, breakfasts and sport. On Shrove Tuesday, we hit the slopes on our sleds, and on May Day, we meet in Kaisaniemi Park.


At the Swedish School of Social Science, all disciplines have their own student organisation. They are a good opportunity to get to know your fellow students a little better, and they also protect students' rights.

Discipline-specific organisations organise a range of different events, such as field trips and parties. Often the events are connected to the field of the organisation.

The Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY) protects your rights at the University and in society at large. HYY supports its sub-organisations, arranges various events and offers member benefits and services ranging from the Student Calendar to legal aid. HYY comprises more than 250 organisations, including everything from discipline- and faculty-specific student organisations, student nations and all kinds of recreational associations.

Student nations are cross-disciplinary, but members often hail from the same geographical area. Student nations bring students together and organise many different kinds of events.
