New College, Oxford

University residence

Set in the heart of Oxford's charming centre, New College offers a variety of accommodation options across three unique sites, with rooms ranging from premium ensuite to standard budget. 

The premium double ensuite rooms give you the opportunity to stay in the late 17th century Garden Quadrangle set within the College's Old Buildings. These rooms offer a higher quality of furnishings and a great insight inside one of Oxford's oldest Colleges. 

The budget ensuite rooms in Bodicote House can offer views of the City Wall, which encloses the College garden. This external accommodation block on Longwall Street is just steps away from High Street. 

Many of the New College Lane rooms boast views of the Bridge of Sighs and offer an extremely convenient base for your stay in Oxford. These single rooms have shared bathrooms but are only a street away from the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera. 

As part of your stay at New College, you will receive complimentary access to explore the College grounds, subject to opening times and planned closures - the normal admission fee is £8! Please collect a voucher from the Porters Lodge. 

Important notice - Staircases/accommodation blocks do not contain passenger lifts and all guests must be aged 18 or over. New College does not allow stag or hen parties. Please also note that there is a 2-night minimum stay at weekends (arriving on a Friday or Saturday). 

Check In: 14:00 (2:00pm) - 00:00 (12:00am) (no arrivals allowed outside this window)

Check Out: 00:00 (12:00am) - 10:00 (10:00am)

I used the cheapest room online, so wasn't expecting much! The room was clean and functional, the shower was amazingly powerful. The review values are based on convenience and value for money. The only negative was the fridge was very noisy (relatively) and the bin men were clattering around a...

It was a lovely old(ish) building that we stayed in, giving a very ‘Oxford’ kind of experience. The porters were superb. The room itself was not the fanciest, being quite institutional, but what else can you expect from a student room? The most important part, the bed, was very comfortable. We al...

What a gorgeous setting. Marvelous to feel perfectly safe within the city walls. Very few people in Oxford, and certainly at breakfast we were amongst a bare handful with a large choice of cooked breakfast. Lovely to be able to visit and COVID precautions were exemplary.

Quiet, reasonably comfortable. Lamp by bedside oddly had nowhere to plug in. Staff all charming, we loved the quirkiness off being in the college, plus the magnificent gardens. Some information about the chapel or the hall would have been very much appreciated.

Beautiful college, fantastic location. Very helpful porters; great to be able to park in the college. Characterful student rooms with clean, basic facilities; breakfast in Hall very nice.

Great location and wonderful setting, but a very gloomy room, I'm glad I don't have to live there. The 70s curtains were a novelty for one night.

It would be helpful to have an easier access to internet - my ipad connected easily but I couldn't have faced the detailed instructions otherwise.
