THS Organisation

The Student Union (THS) is an organization run by the students at KTH. THS consists of 22 different Chapters, which are connected to different areas of study. Every programme belongs to a specific Chapter!

THS is one of Sweden’s oldest student unions and was founded 1902 and has since then been working hard to maintain and constantly develop the quality of education, create stronger business relationships and create a broader student life. In short, we are here to make your years at KTH as good as possible!

THS offers skill development and networking and boasts one of the biggest student career fairs in Sweden – THS Armada. THS is based in its main building Nymble, and with the big city across the street, THS is a hub for student life in Stockholm.

Union Council (KF) is the highest decision-making body of THS. The Union council elects the Union Board (KS), which is responsible for THS long term and strategic work. The Union Board in turn elects the Management team (KL), which are full-time students working one year in order to improve the education and student life at KTH.

There are also employed staff working at the Student Union Office, Cafes and Restaurant as well as other administrative tasks.
