The billeting program is a new program within New College, in which incoming students living on residence and participating at Orientation 2018 have the option to host a commuter student for Orientation week. This program aims to make Orientation more commuter friendly, as well as allow commuter students to integrate themselves into the New College community.
As a residence student, we invite you to billet out your room, i.e.: share your room (single or double) with a commuter from Monday morning at 8:00 am to Wednesday evening at 5:00 pm. By filling out the forms you will be assigned a roommate that best meets your information provided, to ensure a quality match.
Commuter students that wish to participate in this program are responsible for bringing their own sleeping bag and other necessities, as well as paying a fee $20 that will be paid on the Monday of Orientation, during registration. You will not get access to the New College dining hall apart from Orientation funded meals.
Move in for commuter students that are staying for Orientation week will take place at 8:00am of the first Orientation day (September 3rd 2018), and Move out is on Wednesday, September 5th 2018 by 5:00 pm.
