"New College allows students to experience the intimacy of a cohesive, family-like community while exploring the delightful culture and academic resources of a large university and global city."

Originally from Queensland, I went straight from High School to University via a trip to China and Hong Kong over the break.
Moving away from home was a challenge. However, New College has made my transition into University so much easier. The first group of people I became close with was my college friends. Living with them allowed me to know them better, and together we are very proud of the prestige that inherently comes with being a part of this community. Furthermore, the college offers a newly renovated living environment and strong academic support, as well as occasions for exciting social opportunities and extracurricular exploration. I have been particularly involved with the college’s annual cultural activities, including art competitions, playing in the band for Play and singing for Revue.
College life has had a real positive effect on my time at university. It has exposed me to a myriad of lifelong friends, a strong network, a place to study and a group to party with. It is an experience like none other, one that I treasure as the fondest of memories.
