Questions and answers

How do I find to the nation?

Link to Google MapsFrom the cathedral, go down Biskopsgatan and then Trädgårdsgatan until you come to a big yellow house on the right (just after Gästrike Hälsinge nation, which is a yellow little smaller house). In fact, if you find the cathedral you will find your way almost everywhere in the city.

I have changed my address, how do I tell you?

- You can change it yourself at uppsalastudent.com or send an email to 1Q. Remember that our system is not linked to the national register, so you must self-notify the change of address.

Where is my nation card?

- During the enrollment period, it may take up to a month before the card arrives, until then the receipt you received at the enrollment works as a temporal nation card. What’s important to know is that in order for you to receive your card to your home address, you must have been at the nation and registered, even if you are registered online. If the card still has not arrived after a month- contact the 1Q.

Who should I contact if I want to work in the café/pub/After School/Celebris Nightclub?

- Contact thr 3Q and you'll get forwarded to the right person. Contact info here. A easy rule is that if you still do not know who to get in touch with the 1Q is usually able to answer the most general questions.

Does ÖG pay out salary when you work?

- It depends. The daily activities like café and pub operates non-profitable, and the staff who works there get free food as a thank you and a thank-you-party if they work three or more times. If you become an active working member (ämbetsman) you get a greater responsibility for example the café or the bar, and with the responsibility also comes more benefits. If you want to work and get paid you should try working in the clubs or at rental feasts.

What do you mean "no service"/"ej servering"?

- Not serving is a text that is shown on your nation card if you graduated from high school at an Uppsala school, don’t have the age of 20, or taking a course with guaranteed places. To fix it, you must obtain a certificate from your institution which confirms that you study through them.

How long do you have to queue to get a dorm or apartment at ÖG?

- We use a point system where you get one point per semester you have been a member of ÖG. One can also gain extra points by getting involved and take responsibility for the nation’s events. For a dorm room close to the nation building it usually requires about 4-6 points. For the energetic students there is a chance to get a central dormitory as early as the first semester in Uppsala.

What is the difference between workers and officers (ämbetsmän)?

- An ämbetsman is a person who is elected by the Landskap and has a greater responsibility than a worker who just comes and works every now and then. An ämbetsman has certain requirements to fulfill, while a worker can come and go as she/he wish. An ämbetsman also enjoys greater benefits.
