AF-borgen, the home of Akademiska Föreningen, has been the epicenter for Lund’s students since 1851. This is not very long, considering that the university is almost 200 years older. Over the past 10 years, the number of student activities in the house has reached unsurpassed levels. The house is completely buzzing with life and movement almost around the clock, at least when it is not affected by the circumstances surrounding Covid-19.
Around 70 student organizations and committees use AF-borgen’s rooms and halls for their parties, lectures and other activities. The student organizations have a special price list and receive subsidies through the income from Akademiska Föreningen’s memberships, which cover part of their rent. This way, many activities are made possible in the house, something that also contributes to Lund being such a fantastic student city and which for many is the main reason for applying to Lund University.
Many people think of spex and student parties when they think of AF-borgen, but there is a lot more going on in the house! You will meet debate societies, labor market days, the editorial office for the literary magazine Ordkonst, the magazine Lundagård, sewing evenings, student theatre performances, open lectures, the Foreign Policy Association, and much more. This house rarely sleeps!
