A New College House on the Western Edge of Campus

Situated at the far western edge of campus (at 40th Street between Walnut and Locust Walk, next to Rodin and Du Bois College Houses), New College House is the residence of about 430 sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  The House provides all the benefits that come with a College House—faculty leadership and neighbors in the House, and a dedicated staff of professionals to assist with residents' needs, along with a House staff of student Resident Advisors to provide social and educational programming within the House. 

New College House has been built to include state-of-the-art in-House amenities, with communal study areas, common living and social spaces, seminar and music practice rooms, and other features that encourage the community that our on-campus residents have come to expect in the College Houses.  NCH also features a coffee bar, a meditation room, a fitness space, six club rooms with kitchens, and a tinker space.  With 2, 4, 5 and 6-bed suites and a location close to tons of dining and shopping options, New College House is a great addition to the College House family!New College House West - photo by E.
