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.

Housing and Residential Life

New College’s Pei Campus is the center of residential life, with eight out of a total of nine residence halls located there. Along with the dorms, Hamilton “Ham” Center, Palm Court, the Fitness Center and other recreational facilities form a student village where academics and campus life seamlessly intertwine and “learning occurs around the clock.”

Housing options

Letter Dorms

Pritzker, Peterson, Searing, V and Y Residence Halls. The four lodge-style halls (Searing, Peterson and V and Y Letter Halls) feature studio, two and three bedroom apartments, each with its own kitchenette and bathroom. B-Dorm is popular among thesis students and is known for the community spirit that develops among its residents.
