From all applicants, a handfull will be selected for an interview with our Ephorus and three alumni. In order to get accepted into the dorm, it is mandatory to participate in the interview.

The dorm

"I became a Valkendorfianer, higher cannot be reached. Oh, how people do not know of what they may not have. I grew accustomed to traditions enriched in the spirit of past centuries, I found living idols, I have formed the bond of friendship."


Today we live 22 alumni in the beautiful old house on Sankt Peders Stræde in the heart of Copenhagen. Belonging the the dorm is a front- and a backyard rich in rose beds, fruit trees, and a lawn with room for a barbecue, sunbathing, or a game of volleyball. The rooms are distributed across four floors, who all share kitchen and bathroom. Common areas include a livingroom (the Lectorium), a library (the Ruby), and a TV-room (the Emerald). We arrange parties rich on traditions, common dinners twice a week, and share the maintenance work around the house between us.


It is of great importance, that all alumni are socially engaged and eager to contribute to life in the dorm. All alumni hold a house function, which you can read more about on this page.
