As a member of Linnéstudenterna you can take part of the student life in different ways and at different venues in the cities. In Växjö there are two student pubs, Stallarna and Sivans. In Kalmar students often go to pubs and clubs with specific offers for students. Below you can read more about the pubs.
Entrance requirements during the first weeks
As a member of Linnéstudenterna you are welcome to the student pubs in Kalmar and Växjö. Before you have received your membership card from Studentkortet this is what applies: To be able to enter the student pubs you must have paid the membership fee. This can be done online or at the Student Union. At the entrance of the pubs you must show either a payment certificate from us or a valid student card.
Slottsstallarna in Växjö
Slottsstallarna, Stallarna, or just ”Stallet” is one of the student pubs at Växjö Campus. It started as a stable for the Teleborg Castle (hence the name Slottsstallarna that literally translates to Castle-stables), and today it is a student pub run by student associations in Växjö. That means that no workers during the nights get paid in more than working cards and love! To get in to Stallarna you need to be a member in Linnéstudenterna and show a valid photo-ID. If you want to bring a friend who is not a member in Linnéstudenterna you need to buy a guest card. You will find out more about guest cards at Stallarna’s web page. Slottsstallarna is open twice a week; pub night at Thursdays and night club at Fridays.

Sivans pub & Cafe in Växjö
Sivans is situated in the middle of campus and is owned by the five student nations and EHVS. This means that the students working at Sivans are student volunteers. Besides showing a photo ID and membership card from Linnéstudenterna you must also be a member in one of the nations or EHVS. Membership in the nations can be bought from the nation in question and membership in EHVS can be bought at the office of EHVS (on the 2nd floor in the K-building). At the beginning of each semester the nations are often sitting in the K-building selling tickets to upcoming events and you can of course also become a member when visiting them there.
If you have a friend visiting and you want to bring him or her to Sivans you must book a guest card in advance at: http://www.sivansgastkort.com
Sivans is open: Wednesdays: 21-01 Entrance: 20 SEK Fridays: 17-22 (After School) Entrance: free Saturdays: 22-02 (Pub) Entrance: 60 SEK Saturdays: 11-13 (Brunch, for 50 SEK you can eat as much as you like!)
PUBS AND CLUBS in Kalmar
There is no designated student pub in Kalmar since spring 2016 but several of the regular venues offer student nights, and/or student prices with themes like pub nights, music quizzes, live music events, student sittnings (read about it here sittning ) e.t.c.
Linnéstudenterna also organizes some bigger events at the start of the fall semester, like the Garden Party, and a few other events, based on requests from members. In the spring semester, we arrange a big competitive event for students known as Kvastkampen which runs for several days and finishes up with a grand student sittning. We also do a yearly Walpurgis Night celebration and a great many club nights and sittnings.
