Live at Home and Commute to New College in Sarasota

Most of our first-year students live on campus for the sense of community it brings—to be near others with similar educational and life goals, and to develop the lifelong friendships that only happen during the college years.

However, during these complex times, we realize that may not be the ideal situation for all of our students. If you need to live at home, contact Sonia Wu, Dean of Enrollment Management, at swu@ncf,edu or 941-487-4461.

See how you will thrive at New College!
