Please note that, as the College goes about its daily functions, we may have to close parts of the College at various times.  Wherever possible, we will update this page to give you advance notice of these closures.

You can check on-the-day openings by calling the New College Lodge on 01865 279500.  Tour guides can also subscribe to our announcements mailing list by emailing tourism@new.ox.ac.uk.
