Student Life | Houses

Annual Fall Hike

Franklin Classic 5k

Inspired by the British tradition of placing students in houses to foster community, camaraderie, and friendly competition, New College has established four houses into which students are sorted by lot. These houses form the foundation for student life at NCF as each group coordinates student activities, parties, lunches and events. While a faculty member officially leads each house, students are primarily responsible for the planning and execution of the events, making the experience truly student-focused.
