What are you going to be studying? Some of the departments have very active social events.


Much of the socialising in Uppsala is done via the Student Nations - they are a bit like student unions or Oxbridge colleges - they are linked historically to regions; e.g. Stockholms/Göteborgs/Norlands etc - often they have bars/cafes/restuarnts and often sports teams/music groups film nights etc. You join one and you can go to them all - there is a famous pub-crawl where you go to all of them. There is also a drop-in indoor fotball session which might be a good way to meet people http://www.student.uu.se/sh/en_activities.php

The international students also have their own events - it's a shame that you have missed the introductions. But expect it won't be a problem to hop onboard with them as overseas students are always arriving and leaving.

I don't know where you are coming from but bring warm clothes - the snows have already arrived in Sweden - although not as far south as Uppsala yet - but it will soon be cold and snowy!

I'm not sure what you mean by expensive - Sweden is generally expensive to many people - although Uppsala is well geared up for student life - one advantage of being a member of a student nation is that the bars are subsidised!
