Considered the number one city for students in Sweden, Lund offers an exciting campus environment with a vibrant student life, an international atmosphere and memorable student traditions.
The main Lund University campus is set in the charming cobble-stoned city of Lund, which dates back to 990. Today, students make up almost half of the population in the city.
Ask any graduate what is special about Lund University and chances are they will say Lund’s unique student life. The ‘nations’ (large student societies), the Academic Society and the student unions have created many long-standing student traditions and their combined activities form the heart of student life in Lund.
There are many opportunities to meet people and make new friends, whether you prefer to go to a student lounge to relax, party, join in a debate, sing in a choir, attend a ball, go on an excursion, see an exhibition, join a sports team, volunteer at the student radio station, perform in the theatre or join in other student events.
In addition to Swedish traditions, you can also experience some of the unique student traditions of Lund University such as the doctoral conferment ceremony, the student carnival 'Lundakarnevalen' and the comedy student theatre 'spex'.
The University and its students give Lund a youthful and vibrant atmosphere, which has led to an active cultural life full of activities and entertainment: Lund offers art, music, dance, theatre, literature, film and museums. Lund University even has its own museum of art: Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art, founded in 1934 and with free entry for students!
For sports enthusiasts, there are plenty of opportunities to participate in social sports activities through the nations or to join local sports clubs. Within and around Lund, there is a range of sporting and exercise facilities, including swimming pools, tennis courts, climbing centres, sports fields, arenas and Scandinavia’s largest fitness and health centre for students and staff: Gerdahallen.
