The Nation is its members. The idea that the nation is an independent entity, a club or a building, is a recent one. Without members, the Nation would not only come to a standstill – for all intents and purposes, it would not exist.
Currently, Västmanlands-Dala nation counts around 5,500 people as its members, 99% of whom are active members and students and 1% honorary members.
You can join the nation by visiting the nation house or by visiting the website uppsalastudent.com.
The registration at the nation house is open:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 11-17
If you join the nation online your nation card will not be sent to you automatically. This is because we want each member of the nation to visit the house at least once to complete an inquiry for our membership directory. After this is completed the card will be sent to the home address in the future, if desired.
If you register and pay your tuition fee at the nation you will get a temporary nation card that is valid for a month.
To be able to enroll in the nation you need to be admitted to a course at Uppsala University.
The semester fee is 280 SEK and you can pay both with credit cards and with cash.
