The 'nations' are large, welcoming social clubs forming the heart of students’ extracurricular life in Lund. The nations offer a very wide range of activities and services, including lunches, brunches, pubs, housing opportunities, sports, night clubs, formal balls and traditional festivities, among many other things. The activities are usually based around a nation ‘house’ (the nation’s headquarters), where some of the members live and the nation’s office is located.
Students run the nations and most of them do so on a voluntary basis. Being active in a nation will give you the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities and a chance to get to know Swedes and the Swedish culture.
It is 337 years since the first nation was founded and much has changed but the nations’ original purpose remains: to provide students with a good and congenial atmosphere while they live and study in Lund.
Find the nation that best fits you and join Studentlund!
To participate in the nations’ activities you’ll need to be a member of Studentlund. You only join one nation, but you get access to activities at all the other nations through the student card you get when you become a member.
