The Academic Society’s (AF) daily activities are lead by an administration comprised of three elected student representatives that work on the third floor in the tower of AF-borgen. The elected students assume the rolls of Operations Manager, Communications Manager and Program Manager. The administration also includes the infamous “Edil”, who is the contact person for tenants of AF-borgen, and the Housing Ombudsman (with the official title of Bomben), who is the student’s representative at AF Bostäder (the student housing association).
The Academic Society is lead by a Board of Directors, which is advised by a Council (överstyrelse). The Academic Society’s council is made up of representatives from Lund student organizations.

The aim was to include everyone involved with the university in one society, that would act as a home for all students, teachers, and alumni.
The Academic Society was founded in Lund in 1830, based on the Ango-Saxo college stystem. The aim was to include everyone involved with the university in one society, that would act for a home for all students, teachers, and former students. With the motto, “coniuncta valent” – the united are strong- the society has created an unparalleled social and cultural centre. The AF-borg is not only home to the Academic Society, but also to several independent student organizations, such as the student union’s umbrella organization, LUS, and the nations collegiate of curators, KK.
