Are you going to start studying at the Department of Computer and Systems Science at Stockholms University (DSV) in the autumn term? Do you want to get to know your new classmates and have fun at the same time? Then you should definitely participate in Insparken (the Kick-off)!



What is Insparken?

Insparken is the section of the Student Union DISK that welcomes all new students to DSV every autumn! We do this so that you as a student will get to know the school and meet the friends that you will later hang out and work with in the future, such as group assignments at school, but perhaps also in working life. 

Insparken is run by our dear “Staben” with the help of “Drivare”, and during the first two weeks of the semesters we offer lots of games and activities to break the ice between the students, new and old. 

This year, Insparken will take place digitally, so that everyone can participate even though they are not physically on site at the school. Those who want to come to Foo Bar, our student union place, are more than welcome, but this is completely voluntary.

You get to decide which activities you want to participate in, and something that is good to know is that all activities are completely alcohol-free or when there is alcohol during an activity, such as a dinner session, there is always an alcohol-free alternative.


The student union DISK has an official discord server called DISKord. During each day of the Inspark, someone from the Inspark will sit in one of the voice channels. Feel free to jump in there if you have any questions about Insparken or your studies at DSV, or if you just want to say hello and hang out a bit. A link to the DISKord can be found here.


During your first two weeks at DSV, there are assignments and “Stabenfrågor” (Questions about Staben). These will take place on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for both weeks. Every day has different themes that the missions, costumes, questions and challenges center around.

You can choose to complete the assignments from home, in Foo Bar, in DISKord or meet elsewhere. It’s entirely up to you! Collect points with your team to win the honorary trophy and the title Winner of Insparken 2021. Send your assignments to

The assignments are posted on our instagram @diskinsparken and here on our website under Daily assignments.
