Commemorative Issue: The Norwegian Student Society Bicentenary

Student cap, debate

In July 1813 the first batch of students, eighteen in all, were enrolled at Det kongelige Frederiks Universitet (the Royal Frederick University) in Christiania.

They lived in different parts of the city and, when they met, they often talked about establishing a meeting place. On 1 October the eighteen students agreed to put together the necessary funds to found a students’ society. They contributed 15 riksdaler each and an errand boy was dispatched to make the purchases: tea, sugar, two teapots, two milk jugs, two dozen tea cups and a minutes book. The boy received two daler for the job. Total expenses: 156 daler. The whole group met the next day, 2 October 1813, and over a cup of tea founded De norske Studerendes Samfund and elected Peter Munch Wang as its first president. No particular plans were made, but the members met every Sunday. They rented premises in various locations until 1860 when they moved into their own building at Universitetsgaten 26.
