CENTURIES OF INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY
Lund University is one of the oldest learning institutions in Scandinavia. Officially established in 1666, Lund University can arguably trace its roots to 1436 when it was recognised as a studium generale, an institution of international excellence. Steeped in centuries of tradition, Lund University has always been at the forefront of innovation with its modern and dynamic approach.
Lund University is known for its variety of student organisations, including the 'nations' of Lund, the Academic Society and student unions. Together these organisations maintain many long-standing student traditions – traditions created by students, for students. It is no surprise, therefore, that Lund is considered the best student city in Sweden!
