To complement its primary role as a centre of learning, New College is committed to offering the best educational and pastoral support to its students.

Medical Services


Severe cuts or broken limbs are best treated by the Emergency Department at The John Radcliffe Hospital (OUH). An Ambulance can be called on university premises by dialling 9-999 or alerting the Porters' Lodge on (2)79500. In the rest of the UK you can dial either 999 or 112.

Inform college via the Porters

If you are feeling unwell it is a good idea to let the Porter’s Lodge know so that relevant help/people can be informed if necessary.  All Porters are First Aid trained and must be informed in an emergency, to help deliver care and to ensure that paramedics are promptly directed when necessary.
