Egtmontgården was established in 1969 with funds from Egmont H. Petersen’s Fond.

The house is primarily for girls in 9 grade, but sometimes also girls from 10 grade and High School.

The students at Egmontgården are given a fully furnished single room with locker, work desk, lamp, shelf and sofa. Most students bring a little extra to give their room a personal touch.

The dorm teacher is Lykke Winther Kjær, who came to Herlufsholm in 1997 and who has been a dorm teacher since 2004. Lykke lives with her husband Kim, who was a student himself at Herlufsholm. Their children are Cilia, Maja, Sebastian, Jacob and Maria. They also have a dog, Elly.
