Lund University is well known for its unique student life and fantastic campus atmosphere. The variety of student organisations, including the famous 'nations' of Lund, provides excellent opportunities for you to experience student life and to join in student events. You can get involved by joining Studentlund!
Membership of Studentlund gives you access to everything ranging from student discounts, cheap accommodation, interesting talks, entertaining theatre and a wide range of other social activities, through to student influence in the University and guaranteed monitoring of education.
Membership gives you access to the natoions, the Academic Society and the student unions.
Getting involved with the nations is a great way to meet friends and enjoy student life. The nations organise a lot of social activities including social sports, clubs (e.g. photography) as well as parties, cheap dinner nights and social events. Some nations also have accommodation.

The student unions handle politics and student rights and are active in contributing to the way in which the University is run.
