New College is a family.
Here, you will find a community working together to make sure that you have the best possible university experience - whether you are an undergraduate, graduate, or visiting student.
Our students are our first priority. With well over 700 of them, we are one of the larger Oxford colleges but we try to make every single one feel like this is a second home.
Situated in the very heart of the city, New College is one of the largest and most architecturally striking colleges in Oxford, combining outstanding facilities with spectacular buildings and gardens set against the medieval city wall.
Did you know?
Despite its name, New College is actually one of the older Oxford colleges, having been founded in 1379. The College's original name was 'The College of St Mary of Winchester in Oxford' - this (as well as being a bit of a mouthful!) made us the second college of St Mary so we became known as New College instead.
