3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are student support groups and CWC counselors available for you.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security is pretty good. Bikes get stolen occasionally... But New College students are very honest and well-intentioned. My friend lost 50$ and had it returned to him! I've lost my id 3 times and had it put in my mailbox! Students usually request personal property, unless it is tasty curry left in the communal kitchen (somebody is going to take that!).

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Students don't get school health insurance but the wellness center is open every day of the week and it is fairly easy to get an appointment. They can't fix a broken arm or put you under the knife, but they will give free medical advise and can prescribe medication. There is also counseling available to students who request it.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police are wonderful, but the area makes me feel uneasy.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Mostly due to the area next to NCF, you can feel a bit unsafe at night, but if you ever do, the blue police lights are right there and they don't mind helping whatsoever

By pure statistics alone, one can easily see that New College is one of the safest campuses in the country. Few college campuses are home to unlocked doors, unattended laptops, and students walking alone in the middle of the night without fear. It is common for students to leave their supplies and books unattended in the library carrels. There is a communal feel on campus that gives one a sense of security and is attributed to the involved student body. The campus police don’t patrol the area looking to get people in trouble—they are friendly and will always help those in need. People feel at home at NCF.

In the rare instances when there are threats to safety, there are always RAs on duty who respond to calls promptly. There are also blue emergency call towers located all over campus, directly connected to the campus police. The lack of red tape at New College makes it easy to file complaints and discuss important matters with the administration. Speaking to a police officer is never daunting, and issues are treated seriously and respectfully. The relationship between students and campus police is overwhelmingly amicable and congenial—students all acknowledge that to ensure a safe campus, they must work together.
