We don't need Billy anymore - 21st century is much...
IKEA says “do it yourself” but those guys thought putting together pieces of wood and placing it in a corner of a room was boring, so they simply decided to make the bookshelf become more vivid. So for the next time, if you need a bookshelf for all your student books, you can either get at IKEA (..boring!) or be creative and do it really “YOURSELF”!

Try one of our favourites nations in Lund -...
Lund’s student life is unique! Why? Because of all the different Nations offered to students. But what is a Nation?

Visit Kullaberg and become a citizen of Ladonia
One of the most amazing parts in Sweden is the Kullaberg peninsula about an hour north of Lund and Malmö. Its beaches, cliffs and caves as well as its small villages make it a place you shouldn’t miss. But its main attraction is the Nimis – a castle on the beach made out of driftwood. And if that wasn’t crazy enough, you should know that Nimis does not stand on Swedish ground but is actually...

Do you need books and copies for your studies?
