Student services

Student Support Services is a resource for issues relating to student administration for schools, administration, students and prospective students.

Housing services

Students housing are found in Lappis and Björnkulla. Unfortunately, due to Södertörn University receiving more incoming students than available rooms, we will not be able to offer accommodation to all students. We therefore strongly advise students to check other accommodation possibilities as well.

Library services

In the university's library search tool, SöderScholar, you can search through our books, e-books, print- and e-journals and more. You can search in SöderScholar from a majority of the pages on the library website by using the search box towards the top-left of the page. More information, for example how you can access our e-resources off-campus, can be found on the Books and e-resources page.

ICT services

MedieCenter helps with IT-related issues, such as login information for university computers and the wireless network. Students can also borrow equipment if their school/subject has stored it with MedieCenter.
