Residential Life

Our campus community is so important to our student success that New College is designated as an intentional residential college, and, as such, requires all students to live in the residence halls unless they have been granted exceptions or waivers.

 

Living on campus at New College gives you the opportunity to be fully engaged in student life. New College students enjoy a strong sense of camaraderie and community unique to our campus.

Our campus community is so important to our student success that New College is designated as an intentional residential college, and, as such, requires all students to live in the residence halls unless they have been granted exceptions or waivers. This on-campus requirement includes a meal plan component.

Students who do not sign up for housing and who are not approved to reside off campus automatically are assigned to our PEI community. If granted approval for off campus student must reapply each school year for this accommodation.
