The building

The house of Östgöta Nation is amongst the biggest of the city’s 13 nations and was built in Italian Neo-Renaissance-style after decades of students high-spirited collecting grants for the project. The construction, however, was so expensive that shortly after King Oscar II had inaugurated the house in 1885 most of the premises were rented out, to the Uppsala Student Union amongst others.

Since its inauguration, the Nation house has undergone many renovations, extensions and refurbishments. Walls have been opened and bricked again, stairs built and torn down, they have even replaced the entire ceiling of the great hall! In other words, the house is in constant transformation, just like the rest of the nation. For example, nowadays we cook dinners in what was once the reference library. Regardless of what we today think of older generations damage and deposit in the house, this means that each member of ÖG passing through this house leaves their own imprint on it. Which will be yours?
