In a community of scholars, there is no place for behavior which marginalizes, ridicules, or demeans others. Therefore, the Office of Residential Life and Housing embraces the following principles:

  • Foster an environment, which nurtures the value and the celebration of human differences.
  • Define diversity to include all members of the campus community.
  • Facilitate learning experiences, which capture the connectedness and interdependence of all people in a pluralistic and global society.

  • Develop leaders who affirm the principles of human rights and dignity and engage these principles in their decisions as leaders to improve the human condition.
  • Establish bridges with other New College of Florida departments to link the learning process in developing values and life skills necessary for a pluralistic and global society.
  • Create collaborative relationships with local communities/agencies to create and sustain a climate both in the community and the campus that fosters diversity.
  • Maintain open learning communities where the free exchange of different points of view, inquiry dialogue and civil discourse are encouraged.
  • Foster professional practice, which emphasizes ethical conduct by all members of the campus community.

Academic or Administrative Dismissal. Students who are removed from housing and/or dismissed from the College as a result of academic or administrative reasons are subject to the terms outlined in Deadlines, Fees, and Refunds above. As determined by the Senior Associate Dean of Student Affairs, certain adjustments may be applied to account for extraordinary circumstances or unnecessary hardship.

Students who have been determined to have preemptively unsat their contract prior to the end of the semester may be required to vacate the residence halls. Students must be in good academic standings with the College to remain a residential student. Students requested to leave due to having a preemptive unsat will forfeit any and all refunds and will be charged any fees/fines/cancellation charges.

d. Conduct Dismissal. Students who are removed from housing and/or dismissed from the College as a result of sanctions or interim measures according to the Student Code of Conduct are liable for the full fees under the Housing Contract. No refunds will be issued for students removed from New College due to violation of the Academic code of conduct. though not required by the terms of the Housing Contract, because it was the right thing to do.

While we view the closure of the campus as unlikely, in the event that the College was required to close its residence halls after the “No refund date”, the College would make every effort to return some portion of housing fees.

Find information about the updated meal plans on the Campus Dining page.

We cannot guarantee a single bedroom to all students who request it.  Students should pack and bring to campus only those items that they actually need for the term.

Students who wish to request a room change can contact Housing-ResLife@ncf.edu

You should definitely talk to your roommates / suitemates regarding what you will be bringing to campus.  You don’t need to duplicate each other’s efforts 🙂

New College Packing List Guide

Accommodations are considered for new or current students whose disabilities substantially limit their ability to live in New College’s traditional housing arrangement.

In order to accurately evaluate housing accommodation requests, documentation is required to establish the existence of the condition that necessitates accommodations. Documentation consists of a written evaluation by an appropriate professional that explains the nature of the condition and why the condition results in a need for housing accommodations.
