Christmas at Uplands

Christmas at Uplands (Jul på Uplands) is a Christmas celebration event which has taken place at the nation since 1969. The event started as an alternative for students who could not travel home over the holidays. The celebrations have changed since the start and is now open for everyone.

The event is free of charge, open for everyone, completely free of drugs and alcohol, and is financed through donations. The food mostly comes from restaurants in the Uppsala area.

The event usually has 1 500–2 000 visitors each year.

When is the event?

The event takes place at the nation house during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, 12:00–22:00 both days.
