Student life at Uppsala University

We believe that life outside of the classroom is just as important as inside, which is why Uppsala University, the student unions and the student nations work together to make your time as a student as enjoyable and inspiring as possible. As a student at Uppsala University you have the power to influence your studies and help to shape your learning environment. While you are here, we encourage you to get involved, get to know your fellow students and make your voice heard in the student body.

Walpurgis in Uppsala

The 30th of April, Walpurgis Eve – referred to as ‘Sista april’ or ‘Valborg’ in Swedish – is the celebration of spring arriving in Sweden that you can't. And the celebrations at Uppsala University are truly extra special, with student floats running the Fyris River, herring lunches, the donning of the caps at Carolina Rediviva, parties and much more.
