Welcome to GH-Nation!
Gästrike-Hälsinge Nation is – like all other nations – made for students, by students. This means that we do everything to make your time in Uppsala the best possible. We also make sure that you have the opportunity to be yourself and create the nation you want. Even though there are a lot of traditions we are constantly creating and changing them so you can have the best experience possible.
We offer our members a big and yellow nation house containing a library and about 40 study places. During the few but sought after warm months of the year you also have the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy our lush garden and maybe even pick an apple from one of the oldest apple trees in central Uppsala.
Every evening during the semesters our pub Ghuben is open to serve you a beer from a selection of nearly 200 different beers. We also have a fine selection of whiskey and drinks. Just ask our friendly staff and they will help you make your choice. On Saturdays our Pancakebar serve american pancakes with a variety of toppings! We also serves sandwiches, juices, coffee and cakes – a perfect way to start your Saturday!
If neither eating or drinking are on your schedule we have more activities for you! Like to sing? Join our choir. Enjoy writing? We have a magazine made by and for members. And these are just a few of the many! You can find all the information you need in the navigation field to the left.
The nation offer members one of the fastest housing queues in Uppsala. Usually it takes less than a semester to get hold of a dorm room, either at Studentvägen or nearbu Ekonomikum. We are very proud to offer accommodation to every tenth member of the nation!
Every year we hand out roughly two million Swedish kronor in scholarships to our members. More information about the scholarships can be found to the left and you are always welcome to visit the nation with your questions. We have five full-time employees waiting to answer them.
Becoming a member
Becoming a member is very easy. A week before the beginning of the semester we open the doors to our sign-up. Bring your admission paper and a valid identification to the nation and talk to our International Secretary’s – they will answer all your questions and help you become a member. This is also the perfect opportunity to sign up for our Reccemottagning, the day when we welcome all our new members the the nation. The day ends with a lovely dinner together with a lot of singing and laugther.
