The Gradel Quadrangles

New College has embarked on an ambitious scheme to redevelop its Savile Road site to create a
new living and working space in a stunning new architectural setting.

The College’s aims in developing the site are:

To house all undergraduates who wish to live in for all of their course in high quality accommodation.
99 new student rooms will be created as part of the project (and one for a Junior Dean). 

To provide a state of the art flexible study and teaching workspace for students to study on their
own or in small groups as well as a space for lectures, symposia and break-out group work.

To create a multi-purpose arts and performance venue, a space for concerts, theatre, exhibitions and
talks, with associated foyer areas and catering facilities.

To build new facilities for New College School. In reconfiguring the site, part of the new building will
house school dining and kitchen facilities, classrooms for the pre-prep and a new assembly hall.
