The VSETH (German: Verband der Studierenden an der ETH, English: Association of Students at the ETH) is organised as an union. Since 1862 it represents the students at ETH.
Its organisation is similiar to the Swiss political system and to the ETH. The ETH Rectorate and the departments can be compared to the VSETH board and the study associations, which represent the students.
In addition to the student representation, the study associations offer several services such as excursions, career fairs, BBQs and many more. Multidisciplinary events and services are offered by the VSETH commitees and organisations. From cinema shows, sports tournaments, debate contests to development programs, parties and the cheapest printing service in Switzerland – the variety of student offers is vast.
The VSETH also provides several student organisations with infrastructure and if necessary financial support.
