New College Village
New College Village (NCV) opened its doors in 2009. NCV seeks to provide strong academic and pastoral care support founded on Christian faith and values. NCV accepts men and women from a wide range of backgrounds and membership is open to people of all beliefs. It offers accommodation, academic assistance, pastoral care and community activities for over 300 postgraduate and selected undergraduate students. All areas of study are represented at New College Village.In most cases, the NCV is an ideal choice for postgraduate or mature age students.
Residents are accommodated in a studio room or a five or six single bedroom apartment. Each apartment will have both male and female occupants, and contains a common kitchen area. The studio rooms will contain a kitchenette. Each room has a single bed, desk, chair and bookshelves. An ensuite and air-conditioning is provided in every room. Bed Linen is provided by New College Village, and is laundered each week. NCV also cleans rooms each week.
The NCV does not provide food for residents with this package. For residents in a studio room there is a kitchenette with a microwave and stove top for cooking purposes as well as a sink and fridge. Residents in shared apartments will share a fully-equipped common kitchen area.
A catering package entitling NCV residents to obtain lunch and dinner from the cafe at New College will be available again in 2012.
New College has historically offered a limited number of accommodation places for research students, post-doctoral fellows and visiting academics or scholars. Since 2009, with the opening of New College Village (NCV), a parallel community exists, providing over 300 places for primarily postgraduate students.
