Student life in Uppsala and Visby
We believe that life outside of the classroom is just as important as inside, which is why Uppsala University, the student unions and the student nations work together to make your time as a student as enjoyable and inspiring as possible. As a student at Uppsala University you have the power to influence your studies and help to shape your learning environment. While you are here, we encourage you to get involved, get to know your fellow students and make your voice heard in the student body.
While you are a student your campus is your workplace. This is the meeting place for researchers, teachers, and students, and where you will make important connections and build your network. Uppsala University has two main study areas, in Uppsala and in Visby on the island of Gotland. In total, there are eleven different campuses, which all include teaching, research and independent study areas, a library and at least one restaurant or cafe. To gain access to the premises and the various campus resources you need a campus card.
