New College has just received planning permission for a new music building, adjacent to the Victorian Savile House in Mansfield Road.

The building, designed by John McAslan and Partners, will offer three floors of accommodation: the top floor will contain two chamber music studios; the first floor, four practice rooms; and the ground floor, a large rehearsal room for opera and drama. Work will begin during the summer of 2015. More images

 

 

Welcome to New College

New College is one of Oxford's oldest and best-known Colleges. Situated in the heart of the city, our main site is one of the most beautiful in Oxford, boasting the earliest planned College quadrangle and spectacular gardens set against the medieval city wall. While learning and scholarship are our primary focus, the College also has an exceptionally rich sporting, cultural and musical life. New College Choir has an international reputation, its output numbering over one hundred CDs, regular broadcasts and several Proms appearances. Founded by William of Wykeham in 1379 for the education of priests, the College has grown to become one of Oxford's largest, admitting undergraduate and graduate students for nearly all the subjects on offer in the University. We have a record of consistently strong academic performance, and welcome applications from students of high academic potential, whatever their background.
