SSN - contributing to the good student life.
The Student Welfare Organisation in Southeast Norway (SSN) is the students' welfare organisation, providing student housing, cafeterias, kindergarten, sports centers, bookstores, health services and various student benefits.
If you have paid your semester fee and are a student at the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN), Fagskolen i Viken, Kongsberg, Fagskolen i Vestfold and Telemark or Stavern Police College, you can use SSN's welfare benefits.
The semester fee helps to finance our services, which are:
Student housing on all of USN's eight campuses
Twelve eateries and a kiosk
SSN Health, offering free help from psychologists and therapists, and preventive mental health initiatives
Kindergarten at Notodden
Bookstores on Campus Vestfold, Kongsberg, Drammen and Ringerike
Sports centers on Campus Vestfold, Drammen and Ringerike
Health care expence refund
Financial support for student activities
Personal, financial advice and guidance
Financial and administrative support for student teams and associations
The semester fee is a statutory fee for all students who register for the exam. It helps to cover the operation of the student organization and any expenses for copies and transcripts. Once the semester fee has been paid, your student ID is valid.
It is the educational institution you belong to, that collects and registers the payment of the semester fee. If you are having questions regarding payment, deadlines or need a confirmation of your payment and the registration of you as a student, please contact your campus, not SSN.
1 September for fall semester
1 February for spring semester
The Student Welfare Organisation of Southeast Norway (SSN) is governed by the Student Welfare Organisation Act, saying that the student welfare organisation's responsibility is to provide welfare services to the students at educational institutions.
Everything SSN does, is for the students, and all profits are spent on improving services. The students are in majority in SSN's board, and the chairman of the board is also a student.
