3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Be responsible and you'll be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The police were always helpful when I needed them. I've heard complaints that they can be a little judgmental and unfair.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I am pleased with the priorities that my school has in place. They are not a campus that monitors everyone who enters onto campus (therefore visitors are welcomed) but they are very strict when it comes to anything that can affect peoples safety. They seem to realize what is useful to intervene in and what should be left alone, for now.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You're an adult and they give you the freedom of one. It's one of my favorite things about the school. Even at 4 in the AM you can see people wandering around and studying and stuff like that

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: If you respect the police and do what they ask, it will be okay. If you repeatedly ignore their warnings, you'll get in trouble. They sometimes hide behind the city police when they don't know how to handle a situation.

New College operates under the assumption of possessing intelligent and responsible community members. There is quite a bit of social and individual self-policing involved. However, the "New College bubble" is not hermetically sealed, even though it might seem so at times. Students are encouraged to report suspicious outsiders. There are no student curfews and very few regulations enforced in the dorms other than a "no pet" rule and fire codes. Many students report feeling safe and secure on campus because of the trust they have in their fellow students. When an outsider defaces New College property or harasses a student, the campus will unite in outrage. 

New College of Florida’s mission is one that trusts the individual, and it is a student-centered campus. The administration takes grievances seriously when proposed by the student government. Rules are created in the most direct democratic fashion possible for an institution of higher education. The campus provides a very safe environment. Few incidents occur, the most common being bike theft. As long as this trend continues, the student body will retain power over the affairs of its education and lifestyle. This freedom is rare and nearly impossible to obtain at other schools.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Behaving irresponsibly or inappropriately with drugs or alcohol
  • Having a party loud enough to be heard off campus
  • Parking in the 15-minute parking zones for longer than 15 minutes
  • Violating fire codes or housing pets in dorms
Visitation Policies
Visitation policies are fairly simple. Students must get their guest a "guest pass" from Student Affairs or the Cop Shop. They can also get parking passes from these two locations.
