Where was the University lock-up?

During the first 184 years of its existence, Lund University not only had legal jurisdiction over its students and employees, but also the right to detain them in its own jail, a lock-up known as "proban" in the Swedish of the time.

Archivist Fredrik Tersmeden tells the story of this academic detainment facility. Read about how students in the time of the Swedish Empire led such a rowdy life that they occasionally had to queue to be let in to the lock-up, and also how cell parties were arranged for imprisoned fellow students. The article also provides a guide to the lock-up’s location over the centuries.
