New College

A place to thrive.

Located in central Oxford, New College is a supportive community and provides an environment which allows students from all backgrounds to flourish both socially and academically. 

New College is one of the most architecturally striking colleges, with beautiful gardens and a variety of excellent facilities.

Students at New College

New College has an exceptionally rich cultural, sporting and musical life. Our award-winning music practice building – the Clore Music Studios – and our fantastic sports ground are just a few minutes from the main College site. 

We realise that the prospect of university can seem a bit overwhelming and we really want all of our students to flourish. Our extensive student support team provides comprehensive academic and personal support; our aim is to make New College feel like a home away from home.

…more than its Hogwarts-like beauty. It looks like a castle but it’s definitely a home; there’s a really strong sense of community.
Georgia

…lovely people and fantastic student support outside of the classroom.
Brogan

…driven but caring members of one very unique family, with a variety of talents and interests.

In order to ensure that all areas of the UK are fully supported by the University of Oxford, our colleges are working together to establish Oxford for UK, a series of regional outreach programmes offering tailored and local support to students of mixed ages, their parents and teachers.
 
Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.
