The Dean's Handbook
The Handbook of New College contains rules and procedures for the College's Junior Members. The book's contents are not 'advice' or 'guidance', but form a set of instructions for Junior Members' academic and social behaviour in College.
Responsibility for the Handbook rests with the Dean, who co-ordinates the rules of the different areas which it covers.
Those Junior Members with questions about its contents should raise them with the relevant College officers, who should be approached in the first instance. However, all matters may be raised at any time with the Dean; those wishing to do so should make an appointment with the Deans’ secretary, Jacqui Julier. Students are all issued with a copy of the Handbook.
