Study and live in Uppsala

In Uppsala, more than 40,000 students are seen, heard and make their mark. No wonder: students have been part of the city since 1477. They have created traditions and continue to create new ones, making Uppsala the student city it is today. The University is present everywhere, in buildings, minds and reputation.
