Highlights from the programme

Meet and mingle

Homecoming Weekend offers you many opportunities to meet up with friends and classmates from your days in Lund, while also making new contacts. Go on a pub crawl to the Alumni Network’s After Work and the Alumni Pubs at Helsingkrona Nation and Lund Nation, have lunch with current students, meet up for breakfast and ”fika” at the AlumniHub and continue your conversations at a nation brunch. At the Alumni Network’s gala dinner you will have the pleasure of enjoying a three-course dinner, entertainment and dancing the night away with your fellow LU alumni.

Relive student life

Fika, lectures, pub nights...we’ve got you covered. Your former student union and/or nation welcome you for a visit to their open houses. Take a walk down memory lane and spend a day with us in the AF-building.

Be inspired

Get inspiration from fellow alumni who strive to make the world a better place with the help of their innovative ideas, their network and their LU education. A unique electric car, expert insights on equality issues, cross-border relations and progamming camps for women are some examples of projects presented by alumni during the Homecoming Weekend.

Rediscover Lund

Learn more about the history and future of Lund by joining us for various exhibitions and guided tours. During the weekend, you will have the opportunity to visit the popular Physics and Laser show, Skissernas Museum , Vattenhallen Science Centre, the Student Archives and much more. Go on a bus tour of the sites from the world famous TV-series The Bridge or take a city walk on the tour, “Meet the women with attitude from Lund”.
