With Student Sørøst in your pocket, you who are a student in Southeast Norway get a whole bunch of services that are relevant to you.

Made by and for students

The Student Sørøst App is the students in Southeast Norway's own app, made by and for students. The app sprang out of an Ideathon in March 2020 (a hackaton-ish contest with a competition to create the best student app idea), where members of the winning team in cooperation with the USN student company Rada Labs, have been responsible for most of the development.

The app was launched for the semester start in 2021 and SSN owns and operates it.

In Student Sørøst App you will find, among other things:

  • Coffee cards, barista cards and "student bonus" (cashback) in SSN's eateries.

  • Coupons / gift cards.

  • Menus and opening hours for all SSN's eateries on seven campuses.

  • Info about your tenancy in SSN's student housing, your digital key card (unlocking your student housing unit) and the opportunity to apply for student housing and health expence reimbursement.

  • Shortcuts to Canvas, TimeEdit and My USN.

Do you miss anything in the app?

Student Sørøst is based on microservices. A microservice is a stand-alone small "package" of functionality that can be freely added or removed, based on whether you need it or not. The app can thus be adapted to you and your interests. It can also be expanded with new microservices, so if you miss something, have a good idea or want to develop your own microservice, we hope you contact us!

Post your idea

Psst! We can reveal that we will soon launch a new, smart microservice for you who live in SSN's student housing :)
