Our activities


Pub Ölkällaren

Pub Ölkällaren is Kalmar Nations Tuesday pub since 2016. It's the perfect place to be if you feel like the weekend is too far away, the week has been far too long already and you need a break from your studies.

We offer homemade food and a wide selection of beer. We have five different taps, as well as about 30 different bottled beers. Apart from this, there are of course also wine, cider, whiskey and a variety of non-alcoholic options. Just like a pub should be!

Open every Tuesday between 18 - 01!

We are also always looking for volnteers, since the nation is driven entirely by students. Are you interested in working? Check out our facebook-group or grab one of our foremen!

Lunch Neptuni

Every Thursday Kalmar Nation opens it's doors for our Lunch Neptuni. Just a short walk from LUX, AF, UB, SOL and Paradis, this lunch is a perfect break between lectures. 

We serve cheap, tasty, home cooked food for only 35 SEK. You also get coffee, bread and cake for this amazing price!

Kalmar nation’s sexmästari parties

During the school year, Kalmar Nation host five traditional sittnings for the nation members with festive meals that the Sexmästeri organises.

The Novischfest is organized at the beginning of each semester, both in the fall and in the spring, and is for the nation's new members to experience the student life and Kalmar Nation through a three-course menu with song, choir and other performances.

The Song Book Singthrough is held during the middle of the autumn term and is intended to update the nation's members about the Kalmar Nations songbook content. The goal of the sittning is to try to get through all the songs in one evening. To reach this goal, a five-course menu is served.

The Christmas Party consists of  a Christmas buffet with three servings, Christmas drinks, Christmas carols and everything that belongs to Christmas! The Christmas party is held in early December.

The Spring Party usually takes place in the end of the spring term and celebrates the spring through a pre-drink in the thriving garden, singing and three seasonal dishes.

These sittnings have different dress codes to follow, which are included in the event description for each sittning. After each sittning, there's also an after-party where we open up the bar and arrange dance floor for the ones who want to dance!

If you are interested in attending a sittning, the best way to get more information is through our facebook or swin by the office during opening hours and have The Kuratel tell you more!

Other sittnings

Apart from our Sexmästeri arranged sittnings we also have several thank-you sittnings for our actives and Sittning for Dummies.

The Thank-You Sittnings are entirely free for everyone that has been working during the semester and is held approximately every second month. They usually have different themes to dress up to. During these sittnings we give out awards for the best workers of the term and the best costume.

Sittning for Dummies is a relatively new tradition at Kalmar Nation. Just like the Novischfest this one is held in the beginning of each semester and is a chance for the ones who has never been to a sittning to get explained how they work. These sittnings never have a dress code as it's an introduction to student life in Lund and those who recently moved here might not have thought of their fancy clothes being useful.


Are you an organisation or community within Studentlund who wishes to rent Kalmar Nation for your own pub night or sittning? Contact  q@kalmarnation.nu for more information on how to do so.



The Kalmar spex has existed in it's current form since 2009. For those who aren't familiar with the concept of spex, it is a kind of theatre with musical elements that is written and performed by students. In the spring of 2012 the Kalmarspex became the first spex in Lund's history to be written and performed entirely in English. This is a tradition that has lived on, which contributes to our spex getting bigger and more popular each year. Our spex still is the only one that is consequently entirely in English, which we take huge pride in.

The Kalmar Spex is always looking for new participants, both actors and musicians to perform during the shows, artists, and other handy people that can help with the backstage props. Regardless of your talents, there is a spot for everyone in the spex!

For more information about Spex activities, you can go to their Facebook! For other questions and tickets, you can reach the foremen on spex@kalmarnation.nu
