At Newnham we understand that in order for our students to reach their full academic potential, we have to consider their welfare as well as their educational needs.

To this end, we aim to create a strong support network, assigning a Director of Studies (DoS) and personal tutor to each student, as well as providing access to a College Nurse, College Counsellor and Chaplain. Our Porters’ Lodge is staffed around the clock, so that someone is always available in the event of an emergency. In addition to dedicated staff members, we also have an active ‘College family’ system, whereby students in the year above are connected to new students.
