Fees in 2012

New College will be undergoing significant refurbishment in the Summer recess, from November 2011 to early February 2012.

The renovations will include all rooms and commons rooms being renovated, together with improving the courtyard space and some other common areas.


Residents at New College do not pay weekly rent, but instead an accommodation fee for each semester.

The accommodation fee for 2012 for a resident in a standard room with a shared bathroom is $7,600 per semester (approx. 19 weeks each semester).

The accommodation fee for a room with an ensuite is $8,550 per semester.  Only a very limited number of ensuite rooms are available.

These amounts are inclusive of catering.
