Lund University (Swedish: Lunds universitet), located in Lund in southernmost Sweden, is one of Sweden's most prestigious universities[2] and Scandinavia's largest institution for education and research[3], frequently ranked among the world's top 100 universities[4][5]. The university was founded in 1666 and is the second oldest within Sweden's present borders, but can arguably trace its roots back to 1438, when a studium generale was founded in Lund[6].

After the Treaty of Roskilde in 1658, the Scanian lands came under the possession of the Swedish Crown, which quickly founded the Lund University in 1666 as the means of Swedification. It was the fifth university under the Swedish king, after Uppsala University 1477, the Academia Gustaviana 1632, now in Estonia; the Academy of Åbo 1640, now in Finland; and the University of Greifswald, 1648, now in Germany.

The university was at its founding granted four faculties: law, theological, medicine and philosophy. They were the corner stones, and for more than 200 years this system was in effect. Towards the end of the 17th century, the number of students hovered around 100. Some notable professors in the early days were Samuel Pufendorf, a juridical historian; and Canutus Hahn and Kristian Papke in philosophy.

The Scanian War in 1676 led to a shut-down, which lasted until 1682. The university was re-opened largely due to regional patriots, but the university was not to enjoy a high status until well into the 19th century. Lecturing rooms were few, and lectures were held in the Lund Cathedral and its adjacent chapel. The professors were underpaid.

In 1713, Charles XII of Sweden entered Lund. He stayed in Lund for three years, in between his warlike expeditions. The town of Lund and the university attracted a temporary attention boost. The most notable lecturer during this time was Andreas Rydelius. Carl XII, Karl XII or Carolus Rex, (June 17, 1682 – November 30, 1718), the Alexander of the North, nicknamed in Turkish as Demirbaş Şarl (Charles the Habitué), was King of Sweden from 1697 until his death in 1718. ...


Peace was finally restored with the death of Charles XII in 1718, and during the first half of the 18th century the university was granted added funds. The number of students was now well around 500. Despite not being on par with Uppsala University, it had still built a solid reputation and managed to attract prominent professors.


Around 1760 the university reputation dropped as the number of students fell below 200, most of whom hailed from around the province. However, by 1780 its reputation was largely restored, and continued to rise through the 1820s. This was largely owing to popular and well-educated lecturers particularly in philology; the prominent professor Esaias Tegnér was a particularly notable character with widespread authority. He, in turn, attracted others towards Lund. One of these was the young theological student C. G. Brunius, who studied ancient languages under Tegnér and were later to become professor of Greek. With time he was to devote himself to architectures and he redesigned several of Lund's buildings, as well as churches of the province. Esaias Tegnér Esaias Tegnér (November 13, 1782 - November 2, 1846), Swedish writer, was born at Kyrkerud in Wermelandia. ...


Women at the university

Lunds Universitetsbibliotek (LUB), the main university library.

Lund University showed a more conservative attitude in the early discussions on admitting and was later to attract female students than the university in Uppsala. The first woman to study in Lund was the medical student Hedda Andersson who entered the university in 1880 (two years before the next woman to do so). It also took longer before any woman finished a doctorate at Lund University than at Uppsala. While Ellen Fries had received a Ph.D. in history in Uppsala in 1883, it took until 1910 before Hilma Borelius as the first woman would finish a doctorate in Lund. Another pioneer was Louise Petrén, who in 1911 finished a doctoral dissertation in Mathematics - it would take 50 years before the next dissertation in Mathematics authored by a woman would be presented at any Swedish university.

Lunds kvinnliga studentförening (LKS), the Lund Association of Female Students, was established in 1900, when there were fourteen women enrolled in the university, and just as with the corresponding society in Uppsala a few years earlier, it appears to have helped the women to assert themselves in the predominantly male environment. This included starting to use the student cap in public, which was an important symbolic manifestation at the time.


By the time Hilma Borelius finshed her doctorate in Lund, thirteen women had already finished doctorates in Uppsala and two in the new college in Stockholm (which did not gain full university status until 1960). The reason for the relative lateness of Lund to attract and graduate female students and doctors has not yet been clarified. Hanna Markusson Winkvist, who has studied the early careers of women in Swedish academia, speculates that it may have had something to do with the conservative attitudes from the university or a difference in the general basis of recruitment between the universities (Markusson Winkvist p 125-132).


The first woman to be appointed to a professor's chair was the historian Birgitta Odén (1965). In 1992 Boel Flodgren, Professor of Business Law, was appointed rector magnificus (or, strictly speaking, rectrix magnifica) of Lund University. As such, she was the first woman to be a head of a European university. The word rector (ruler, from the Latin regere) has a number of different meanings. ...


Academics

Lund University is internationally known as Scandinavia's largest research university. The university has eight faculties and many research centres and specialized institutes. Approximately 42,500 students study within each of the 100 educational programs, the eighteen international masters programmes or the 1,400 courses. Almost three hundred courses are, or can be, held in English for the benefit of our international exchange students.

Student life

Lund is known for its particularly active student life, revolving around three central structures: Student Nations, Akademiska Föreningen, and student Unions.


Student Nations

The nations in Lund are a central part of the university's history, initially serving as residential colleges for students, organized by geographic origin. Östgöta Nation, the oldest nation, was established in 1668, two years after the university was founded. While the nations still offer limited housing, today they are best described as student societies. It is required to enroll in a nation to receive grades at the university.

A residential college is an organisational pattern for a division of a university that places academic activity in a community setting of students and faculty, usually at a residence and with shared meals, the college having a degree of autonomy and a federated relationship with the overall university. ...

Today students may enroll in any nation, although the nations still preserve their geographic names.

Each nation has student housing, but the accommodations in no way meet demand, and they are usually appointed according to a queue system. Each nation has at least one pub evening per week, with a following night club. The solemn peak event in the course of an activity year is the organization of student balls once a year. The large nations - e.g. Lunds Nation[2], Göteborgs Nation[3] and Malmö Nation[4] - each organize student balls on their own, whereas other nations seemingly are too small to organize such events on their own. Smaller nations organize joint balls for two or three nations at a time. Most well known of the nation balls (as opposed to balls organized by fraternities or student unions) is the ball hosted by Göteborgs Nation - called the "Gustaf II Adolf Ball" (also known as the "GA-Ball"). Most nations also host at least one banquet per week, where a three course dinner is served. Each nation also has different activities for students interested in sports, arts, or partying. All activities within the nations are voluntary, and most students are not active in them. State Banquet. ...

Akademiska Föreningen (AF)

In 1830, Professor Carl Adolph Agardh formed Akademiska Föreningen (The Academic Society), commonly referred to as AF, with the goal of "developing and cultivating the academic life" by bringing students and faculty from all departments and student nations together in one organization. Prince Oscar I, then Sweden's Chancellor of Education, donated 2000 Kronor to help found the society. In 1848, construction began on AF-Borgen (the AF Fortress), which is located opposite the Main Building in Lundagård. To this day, AF is the center of student life in Lund, featuring many theater companies, a prize-winning student radio (Radio AF), and organizing the enormous Lundakarnevalen (the Lund Carnival) every four years.
