One of the most integral parts of student life in Uppsala is the student nations. There are thirteen student nations, each dating back to the 17th century. Only students can become a member of the nations, which are responsible for arranging activities and events specifically for students.

Though each nation varies in size and character, they each provide a space for students to meet, socialise and enjoy life outside of the classroom. Most nations have a café, pub and restaurant, and popular nation activities include club nights, formal dinners, balls and musical events.

Each nation is named after a specific region in Sweden, and traditionally students joined the nation representing the region they were from. Today however, students can join the nation of their choice. Norrland nation is today the city's largest student nation, with approx 8 000 members.
