Accommodation Options

New College and New College Village (NCV) are residential Colleges for full-time students enrolled at the University of New South Wales and affiliated organisations such as the National Institute for Dramatic Arts (NIDA) and the College of Fine Arts (CoFA).  NCV also has a small number of residents studying at other institutions.

New College

New College is a fully-catered residential college that is home to 247 undergraduate students of The University of New South Wales. The College provides student accommodation for men and women, with even numbers of each. Eleven Academic Tutors provide subject specific support to all residents in the form of tutorials and one-to-one help if needed.  Pastoral care is provided in varied forms with resident advisors on every floor, a Senior RA and the live-in Dean of Residents. This environment makes New College ideal for 1st Year students making the transition from life at home and school to the university. New College is far more than just a place to live and study so many residents end up living at the College for a number of years whilst they undertake their undergraduate program at the University of New South Wales. One of the huge advantages of catered accommodation whilst studying an undergraduate degree is the enormous amount of time you can save when you are provided with three meals a day, seven days a week. The weekly cleaning service is also a very useful time-saver.  Accommodation is based around the university semesters, with residents staying for two semester contract periods each year.

Where you choose to live can make an enormous difference to your university experience.  Living in a full-board residential college such as New College provides friendship and community life, academic support, an abundance of sporting and extracurricular activities and the chance to develop and mature in many ways. The community at New College is famous for its warmth and energy.

New College Village

New College Village (NCV) is a self-catered residential community that is home to 315 students of The University of New South Wales. NCV is home to a large number of undergraduate and also post-graduate students.  Every room in the NCV has an ensuite, and there is a choice between apartment-style living and studio rooms.  Accommodation is usually for 48 weeks a year, though other options may be available in some circumstances.

Pastoral Care is offered to the NCV residents led by the Dean, Assistant Dean and a team of Senior Residents.  Academic support is available from the team of Academic Tutors. 

Common areas in each apartment, together with gathering spaces on each floor, an outdoor terrace and Games Room provide plenty of space for residents to gather together.  A variety of events through the year, and regular courtyard BBQs also help foster a strong community.

The NCV apartments and studios are equipped with kitchens and kitchenettes.  However, for those who would like a part-catered accommodation, an optional meal service is available through the New College Café (across the road) for lunch and dinner Monday to Friday.  This NCV Community is an ideal place for students wanting a good balance between personal space and a strong sense of community. NCV is far more than just a place to live and study and many residents stay at NCV for a number of years whilst they undertake their studies at the University of New South Wales.
