InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Uppsala

Hello to all Americans in Uppsala! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Uppsala? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Uppsala which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Uppsala can be a great destination for expats, even those planning to work in nearby Stockholm. The center of the Swedish Church is a university city known for its small-town feel, laid-back coffeehouse culture, Uppsala University — the oldest in Scandinavia — and the corresponding student population, and much more! With the the comprehensive bus network and a very walkable and bikeable center, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the outer districts, which are just a short bus ride away from Uppsala’s center.

Although Uppsala has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Uppsala, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
