Student Nations of
Uppsala University

Södermanlands-Nerikes nation (usually called Snerikes) is one of the 13 student nations of Uppsala University. The nation claims its founding to be in 1595 when the original Södermanland nation was founded, this nation merged with the Nerikes nation in 1805 to form the current nation.
Though at the turn of the 20th century its numbers were as low as 100 it is currently around 3,500 students as members.

Snerikes is quite unique amongst student nations in that it is the only one that is not entirely open to all students. Swedes must be from or have close family relations to the Snerikes catchment area to join. This requirement is waived for foreign students and Snerikes is a popular nation for ERASMUS students.
