New College of the Humanities

Campus and Crime Map

Student Accommodation

  • NCH accommodation partners offer a range of housing options to reflect all budgets. All recommended halls have excellent security features, comfortable bedrooms and communal areas, and are a short commute from the college.
  • Living alongside fellow NCH students when starting university is a great way for new students to make friends and get their bearings in London. Accommodation is shared with other University of London students, offering a great opportunity to meet and mix with students studying a huge variety of subjects at larger London universities, including UCL, LSE, Imperial, SOAS, Central St Martin's and many others. Students get the halls accommodation experience of a large university, alongside all the benefits of studying in a close-knit college.
  • In their second and third years, students can choose to remain in halls, or choose to share a flat with friends.

Student Life

  • London is jam-packed with everything a student needs, from parks, pubs, shopping, museums, nightlife and much, much more. The capital truly has something to keep everyone entertained.
  • London is not the cheapest place for a student to live; students need to ensure they budget wisely. Accommodation tends to be one of the larger expenses for students when they live in the big city.

Nightlife and Culture

  • London is packed full of world-class museums, theatres and restaurants, not to mention outstanding music and comedy venues.
  • NCH is based in the heart of Bloomsbury, mere steps from the British Museum, and a short walk from the stunning and lively Covent Garden, Oxford Street and Theatreland.
  • Students at NCH benefit uniquely from a friendly, community-based environment in the centre of a bustling city, which may seem daunting at first. NCH's societies and clubs thrive in part due to the range of experiences and events London has to offer. 


  • Students in London have nothing to fear with the city's transport network. With discounts for young people and students, individuals can get from A to B easily, by using buses, trains and the underground.
  • Cycling is encouraged, as it is an environmentally friendly way to travel around the city. However, London's roads are infamously busy and dangerous. Students need to be very careful.
  • Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton airports each provide excellent links for travelling all over the globe.
