Lassengården is named after Anders Lassen (1920-1945), who was an officer in the British Special Boat Service during World War II. For a short period of time he was a student at Herlufsholm. He was the only foreigner to receive the Victoria Cross, the highest British military order.
From the school year 2019-2020, Lassengården will only house boys from the High School.
All the students get a single room, fully furnished with locker, work desk, lamp, shelf and sofa. Most students bring a little extra to give a personal touch to the room.
