Visiting New College

Prospective applicants are always welcome to look around when the College is open; simply let our Porters know on arrival. 

Open Days

Open Days offer the perfect opportunity to look around both the College and University. You can meet our tutors and current students, and speak to representatives from the College's Admissions and Outreach teams. 

The 2020 Open Days will be held on Wednesday 1st July, Thursday 2nd July, and Friday 18th September. During the Open Days, most Oxford colleges and departments will be open to prospective students. For full details of what is on across the University, please check the Open Day Guide on the main University website

At New College, our team of friendly undergraduates will be offering tours of the College from 10am-16:30pm. They will also be available to answer any questions you might have about student life and their own experiences of studying at Oxford. As well as meeting our students, visitors will have the opportunity to meet our tutors at subject-specific talks scheduled throughout the day. There is no need to book for these talks. 

Once confirmed, you will be able to find the full timetable of subject sessions here. 

Please note that all Open Day visitors should enter the College via the Visitors' Entrance on New College Lane, not via the Porters' Lodge on Holywell Street.
