Good for your studies

DISK’s primary function is to ensure the quality of the education on DSV. If you have been treated badly or if you think that your education is not up to scratch you can always contact the student´s watch via studiebevakning@disk.su.se.

DISK also have a broad member called “student safety agent”. The student safety agent is there to help the students at the Institution for Data- and System science with the different problems that might arise within the study environment. The student safety agent can be reached via studskyddsombud@disk.su.se.

Good for you

Every week during the semesters the student union and our sections arrange activities for our members. This makes it easier for you to get a memorable study time at DSV. DISK is also connected to both SSCO (Stockholm’s central organisation for student unions) and SFS (The Swedish National Union for Students), which makes your membership important on a political level.

As a member in DISK you have the right to register at SSSBs (Stiftelsen Stockholms Studentbostäder) housing queue. SSSB have around 8000 housings for students connected to them.

Good for your wallet

Studentkortet – All members at DISK will get Studentkortet, that works as a legitimation when you want to by SL traveller cards with the student discount (it is required to study at least 22.5 hp per semester) or use other discounts brought to you by Studentkortet.

You will also get a discount in the cafeteria, student union expedition and Foo Bar (the pub).

Loads of events coming up

DISKs calender is loaded with fun events these upcoming weeks. Try fencing or bouldering with the Sport, watch V for Vendetta with MES or attend SKs LAN. You’ll find more events and information at the event page.

Pssst there will be an election pub the 31st of October. The election committee from DISK and all of the sections will be there to answer all of your questions.

Tote bag

Have you seen our new tote bag? It fits most laptops and some more stuff so it’s perfect for when you’re going to DSV, the store, the beach or anywhere else. You can buy it in the student union office for 40 kr, if you’re a member you get your discount as usual.

Join DISKs Facebook groups

On Facebook there is one group for all of the students at DSV the group works like a platform where you get in contact with students to sell/buy course literature or anything else that is student related. The name of the group of the is “Studenter på DSV”.

SFS housing report

Today SFS (Swedens united student unions) released their annual housing report. This year’s report shows that students face an unsafe housing market when they start studying. In 12 cities in Sweden, students can not expect to get a home within six months, Stockholm is one of these cities. The report also shows that a number of students have rents that are not reasonable for their finances. You can read more about the report in Swedish here, and here you can download the SFS housing report.

The fact that you can not find a home should not be the reason why you do not start or continue your education, but it is unfortunately the truth for some students. Among our tips on the website, we have listed different ways to find a residence in Stockholm, both first-hand contracts through ex. SSSB but also by subletting through, for example, akademisk kvart.

 

Checklist when you’re subletting:

  • Aways take a look at the apartment before accepting it
  • Check if the person is approved to sublet by the landlord
  • Determine the rules with the person you rent of
  • Sign a contract (but do not pay any money until the contract is written)
  • Save the receipt every time you pay the rent and sign a home insurance.

Insparken

Straight after the introduction on August 30th, Insparken will show the new students around the department. This is the starting point for the next two weeks of Insparken, which will be filled with activities and lots of other fun things. More information can be found under Insparken and on their website.

New website

During the summer the website has got a face lift and some more information. We hope you as a member  appreciate the changes, if there is anything you think is missing on the website or anything else you would like to point out, please feel free to contact our information officer at info@disk.su.se
