Who can become a member?

Norrlands nation originally originated from student associations that targeted students from Norbotten, Västerbotten, Jämtland and Västernorrland counties. It is also the landscapes included in these counties that make up the nation's coat of arms.

Today, there are students from all over Sweden (and the world) at the nation.

The nation still has a natural affinity with northern Sweden. Our partner Norrlandsförbundet works specifically for Norrland's economic, cultural and social development.

How do I change my address?

Students at Uppsala University cannot change their address manually on the student portal. However, the address is synchronized once a week against new information from the national registration system.


Students at SLU or members who are no longer studying can change their address by visiting the office or sending an e-mail to

Where is my nation card?

​The two most common reasons why you haven't recieved your card is that you either do not have the correct address registered or that your card has not had time to be manufactured. One week is the normal delivery time, but during certain periods it can take up to three weeks for your card to arrive.

Can I get a new nation card?

If you have lost your term card you can get a new temporary card by visiting the office. To order a new card, visit Studentkortet (Stuk) at Remember that you always have a digital version of the card in Studentkortet's app.

Where can I buy a guest card?

Students at universities or colleges in other countries or other cities in Sweden may buy a guest card (temporary membership) to get access to the student nations of Uppsala and their great range of activities. You can purchase this card at any of the nations, or at Kuratorskonventet’s Guest card expedition located at the bottom floor of the student union (Uppsala studentkår) building on Övre Slottsgatan 7.

The cost is 150 SEK. Make sure to bring an ID and a valid Student Card from your home University.
