The Nations

As a student in Lund you have to visit one of the nations, they are one of the reasons that makes Lund such a great town to study in. The nations organizes restaurant events, sports activities, lunches, cultural events, pubs and night clubs. There are 13 different nations and everyone has their individual orientation, meaning you have 13 chances to find your own favourite. When started, the nations were a way for the students to unite with other people from their place of origin, therefore the nations are named after Swedish counties, cities or regions. Today, however, you may join whichever you like.
12 of the Nations cooperates with Studentlund. If you are a member in one of these nations you will receive many benefits from Studentlund. In order to sign up for the housing queue of Akademiska Föreningens Bostäder (AFB) you need to be a member in a nation.
