Student Union of the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration ( _no. Norges Handelshøyskoles Studentforening) or NHHS is the student union of the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH) in Bergen, Norway. All students at the school are members of NHHS, that is divided into 28 groups with another 37 associated groups.

The student union is among the most active in the country, and also among the wealthiest. The most prominent activities are the two biannual events UKEN, a festival, and NHH Symposiet, a business conference. Both provide large revenue that finance the rest of the student activities, even though Uken in 2006 lost larges sums of money [cite web|url= |title=Baksmell for NHH-studenter |author=Dagens Næringsliv |date=2006.09.06 |language=Norwegian] . It also publishes the biweekly newspaper "K7 Bulletin". NHHS is led by an executive board with seven members, and in 2008 chairman is Thomas H. Leren.
