Hvilla Medici

Hvilla Medici, or simply the Hvilla, is the house of The Sahlgrenska academy Student Union. In1974 it was purchased by the Medical society of Gothenburg as the original Villa Medici, donated by Mrs Cyssie Hammar in 1954, and became too small for the growing student union. In 2010 when the unions merged the house was passed on to SAKS.

On the top floor of the house, the seventh heaven, lives three curators. Along with the Kårhusstyrelse they care for the house. Today Hvillan is used daily for everything from meetings to rehearsals and parties. The house can also be rented when not in use, for information on this contact one of the curators.
