Fees

The New College Communities at UNSW operate as not-for-profit affiliate colleges of the University of New South Wales and every effort is made to keep fees as affordable as possible.

The fee summaries below relate to future residents. Returning residents are often eligible for loyalty rates and should find this information when published in the College's internal weekly newsletter towards the end of the year.

Fee Summary

New College

Residents at New College do not pay weekly rent, but instead an 'accommodation fee' for 44 weeks’ residence and membership. The accommodation fee covers:

  • Full catering (3 meals, 7 days per week) plus fruit, bread/condiments and milk
  • Weekly housekeeping
  • Pastoral care
  • Academic support
  • High speed internet (40GB standard with 100mbps download/upload speeds) at no extra cost. Additional data can be purchased if required.
  • Utilities (power, water, rubbish & recycling)
  • Formal social events and College suppers
  • Full access to student facilities such as the music room, resource room, and games room.

The standard contract period is for approximately 44 weeks covering the full academic period from the start of O'Week until the end of the formal examination period at the end of Term 3. Outside of this time, residents normally return home over the summer break. If needed, residents may pay an additional charge to stay in College at other times. Because residents are only committed to a 44 week contract period, this may provide significant savings compared with needing to pay a 52 week rental period.

In 2021 the standard contract period is:

44 week contract period from Sunday 7 February to Sunday 12 December 2021. 

Acceptance of membership is a contract for financial responsibility for the whole of this period. Termination of residency is usually at the end of the year and can only be varied with the approval of the Master.
