The student residence in Skanör

Address: Kyrkogatan 3, 23930 Skanör
Phone: 046-38 49 00

On the edge of Skanör, where the old town meets the river, once lived
Edla and John af Klercker. From their large house they could let their eyes
wander over the small town with its church and town hall, over the rich
river and meet the sea in the south. The student farm was donated in 1938 to
the students at Lund University by Edla af Klercker, to provide "an opportunity
for study, rest and recreation in a free and informal setting". Life in
the house at that time was based on both spiritual and culinary dining, not unlike
the Studentgården today.
The purpose of the donation was precisely to provide Lunda students with the opportunity for
both studies and recreation. We do our
best to live up to this goal and tradition even today.
