Student associations

As a student at Lund University, you can join a wide range of student associations. These are run by and for students and focus on interests such as music, theatre ('spex'), politics, religion, technology, and more.

Find a student association that suits you

If this is your first semester at Lund, you can meet several of the student associations at the 'Student Association Fair' (SAF), which is held in English during the Orientation Weeks.

You can also attend the Swedish version of this event, 'Hälsningsgillet' (the 'Welcome Expo'), held at the AF building at the beginning of each semester.

Most student associations host information evenings and kick-off meetings at the start of every semester. 

Several student associations are linked to the Academic Society, also known as AF, which organises various cultural events for students.

About the Academic Society
