Additional Accommodation Costs

Newnham College also charge a Kitchen Fixed Charge (KFC) to cover the costs of facilities in the graduate houses, the subsidised buttery (cafeteria), and the College linen service. Students who “live out” (not in College accommodation) do not pay KFC.

Council Tax

Full time students are not liable to pay the local property tax. Students living in College will not have to apply for any type of exemption. Students living outside College are likely to need a confirmation letter for council tax exemption. Students must have updated their address on Camsis before requesting a letter.
