student social clubs
The 13 'nations' are large student social clubs that are unique in Sweden. Each nation has its own particular atmosphere. Getting involved with the nations is a great way to meet friends and enjoy student life.
The nations are large, welcoming social clubs forming the heart of students’ extracurricular life in Lund. They offer a very wide range of activities and services, including lunches, brunches, pubs, housing opportunities, sports, night clubs, formal balls and traditional festivities. The activities normally take place in and around a nation 'house' (the nation’s headquarters), where the nation’s office is located and where some of its members live.
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.
The first nations were founded shortly after the University itself was founded. Much has changed since then, but the nations’ original purpose to provide students with a good and congenial atmosphere while they live and study in Lund remains.
Find the nation that fits you best and join Studentlund!
To participate in the nations’ activities you will need to be a member of Studentlund. You join one nation only, but you get access to activities at all other nations through the student card you get when you become a member.
