Joining a nation?

14 Sep

Registration period ends Friday

If you have been thinking about joining a nation but haven’t yet acted upon it, note the official registration period ends this Friday, September 17.

After that, joining will be much more of a hassle, and you might have to wait a long (longer) time before you get a student card.

Joining a nation has been mandatory for undergraduate Swedish students at LU for over 300 years. This year marks a big change in student culture in Lund, with nation membership becoming optional.

Still, nations retain their exclusive rights to serve cheaper food and drinks to members, and only students can become members.

A beer in a nation will usually run anywhere between 20 and 40 SEK, generally half of what they cost elsewhere. A meal is usually between 30 and 50 (more for a sittning), and sometimes includes dessert and coffee.
