We want New College to feel like a home away from home

For many students, the cost of accommodation can be a source of worry. However, as we are one of the larger Oxford colleges, we can offer College accommodation throughout your undergraduate degree at an affordable rate. For most of our rooms, you also only pay for the time that you are actually in Oxford so our short terms help keep your costs down as well. 

We want to help our new students settle in quickly so all first years live in the same buildings on the main College site to help them get to know each other and the College. 

    The majority of our rooms are en suite and even those with shared bathrooms normally only share with one or two other students. 

    Our rooms are allocated randomly in first year and operate by ballot afterwards - if you have a smaller room in first year, you will have first choice of your second year room so that everything is fair. 

    All of them, though, include: 

    • bed
    • desk
    • wardrobe
    • lamps
    • fridge

    We also have a friendly team of College cleaners to make sure that your room is kept clean and tidy. 


    The Gradel Quad

    Most of our undergraduate students are housed on or around the main College site, but in 2023 we will open our state-of-the-art facility, the Gradel Quadrangles. Situated just a couple of minutes' walk from the main New College site, this brand-new accommodation quarter will allow us to offer accommodation to our students throughout their undergraduate degree. 


    Students with Access requirements

    If you have a disability or additional requirements, we have state-of-the-art rooms available on the main College site. 

    The Kimber Wing, completed in 2019, is a highly specified, fully accessible suite for two students with disabilities, and a carer. The rooms were designed by David Bonnett Associates, a leading specialist in accessible design.
