Services

Student services

For some students, the thought of studying in such a vast city as London may be daunting, but at New College of the Humanities you will enjoy the best of both worlds with a warm, supportive, friendly community in a collegiate environment from which to launch yourself confidently into London life.

Emma Norman, Student Wellbeing Coordinator, is also located in the Student Support Office. She is available at any time during office hours to provide support, guidance and information.

Housing services

London offers a huge range of accommodation options for an even wider range of budgets. We recommend near by halls or shared accommodation so you can experience living with fellow students and get straight into the swing of student life. 

Many NCH students also choose to share private accommodation with fellow students. If you choose to live outside of halls, our student support team can help you find accommodation and other students to share with.
