This year the fair will take place the 14th to the 15th of November 2018.

During the fair


ARKAD organizes a number of events before and during the fair. Example of events that all students are welcome to are the lunch lectures, pubs and the grand opening of the fair.


On the first night of the fair, the grand banquet called ARKAD Gasque will be held at Sparbanken Skåne Arena and everyone involved in the fair will receive an invitation. The evening will consist of a three course menu, spectacular entertainment and will also serve as an excellent opportunity the companies to meet motivated students in a more relaxed environment.

Company Sessions

Company sessions provide the opportunity to engage in private talks between students and the companies during the fair. The sessions are a possibility for students to discuss employment opportunities with a specific company. Every session is 15-30 min long, and you have the opportunity to talk about employment opportunities, summer jobs, internships, and thesis projects among other things. The company sessions will be held in the E-building.

Information desk

If you have any questions during the fair you can go to one of the information desks to get help. Every building has its own information desk. This year you will be able to find information on you own by typing in keywords in our ARKAD-Search system.


For your convenience ARKAD is offering transport within Lund during the fair. Due to limited amount of cars available we recommend that you book ahead of time. You will be able to book during the fair through the information desk although we cannot guarantee that there are cars available. The shuttle service will run during both days of the fair, however we are not able to offer transport to and from the banquet.

Lunch & Lounge

Lunch is served during both days of the fair at Kårhuset. Company representatives and engaged students are welcome to eat and further mingle in the dining hall.

The lounges offer a relaxed environment with lots of coffee and snacks. Here company representatives as well as engaged students can enter for recovery during the fair.
