THS (Tekniska Högskolans Studentkår, the Student Union at KTH) is our parent organization. They are responsible for ensuring educational quality and student welfare, as well as organizing social and career-oriented events.
THS also has its own building called Nymble, where you can find a cafe, restaurant, bookstore, event and study spaces, and so much more!
THS also has seveal student associations and Chapters (study field-specific associations), which can be found here.
What Goes on at THS?
THS has a lot of fun activities, but not only that, but there are some decision-making powers here: particularly three.
The THS Union Council (THS kårfullmäktige, KF) are elected representatives from the Chapters and serve as the decision-makers.
The THS Union Board (Kårstyrelsen, KS) work on the long-term development of THS. These positions are elected at the end of the year by KF and are joined by the President and Vice President in the THS Management Team. The Union Board has Board Meetings (KSm) about 10-15 times per year, in which all THS members can attend.
The THS Management Team (Kårledningen, KL). They are elected by KS, and are either elected in the fall or spring terms. They take one year off of their studies to work for the student union in a specific area ex. business relations, social and international relations, education affairs, etc. There are various projects under the responsible persons in the Management Team. One is the THS International Reception!

Becoming a THS Member
There are various reasons for becoming a THS member, which can be found here.
Just as a reminder, as a participant of the THS International Reception, you do not need to be a member of THS.
In order to become a student member of THS, you need to have an active course registration at KTH. If you are only admitted to a course/program, but not registered, then it is not sufficient. You can check your registrations here. You can pay the membership fee here or at KårX, THS's Office in Nymble. You cannot sign up for membership in advance.
