Student life in Uppsala is extraordinary. Wherever you go in Uppsala you will be reminded of the students’ impressions.

In Uppsala, more than 40,000 students are seen, heard and make their mark everywhere. It is no wonder, since they have been part of the city since 1477. They have created traditions and continue to create these, something that made Uppsala the student city it is today.

The university is constantly present in buildings, thoughts and reputation. Experience a unique student life in Uppsala involving six student unions, 13 student nations and a wide variety of student organisations. While you are here, take the opportunity to get engaged, network and meet friends for life!
