Education with you at the heart

Student life

Everything you need to know about your Newbold experience.

At Newbold, our purpose is to craft a community setting where students are nurtured and encouraged to unlock their potential as individuals, spiritually, personally and academically as they prepare to answer God’s calling.

Meet the Student Support Team
Here, you are integral to the Newbold experience. We know you by name and work with you to ensure that your needs are met holistically throughout your time here.
Serena Santona
Academic Registrar
"It is a privilege to follow my calling by working with and for our students. Seeing them grow and progress through their education makes me proud of what we can do as an institution. But the best reward is calling out their names when they graduate."
Danilo Puskas
Head of Student Life and Chaplaincy
“University years are probably the most exciting of our lives. However, being a student is not always easy. That’s why I love to help Newbold students to navigate through this academic and spiritual stage of their life in creating a community where everyone feels that they belong and that they can use their gifts for the glory of God.”
Gabriele Kamoi
Student Finance Officer
“Working with Student Finance gives me the opportunity to facilitate the financial steps students will take towards completing their academic journey. I remember that, as a student, I felt quite anxious about committing financially for the first time, so my hope is to help encourage students to take this step with support along the way. I'd like to think l that I am a small part of the process that helps our students make the most and best of the opportunities at Newbold.”
Meet the Newbold Student Association
The NSA are made up of a team of dedicated students who serve as a main connection between students and support staff. They plan dedicated activities, programmes and socials and are the voice of the students.
Manami Inada
NSA President
"I always love meeting new people and so it is my privilege to take on the role of President of the Newbold Student Association. Newbold is a life-changing place, I can testify to that. I'm so excited to support and grow alongside students on this journey."
Konrad Szanto
“The possibility to guide and help fellow students is a very blessed thing. I look at the example that God shows us constantly - how to be there for others and how to help one another, and I want to take that example to encourage every student's spiritual growth to flourish. It's a privilege to listen to students' experiences and to be a part of them.”
Adam Best
Events Coordinator
“I am so passionate about us as students getting together, having fun, hanging out, and impacting our community. More importantly, these are great ways for us to get closer to God and each other- so please get in touch if you have any ideas!”

    Family Housing options are suitable for students with a family or spouse. The College houses 36 one, two or three-bedroom flats across the grounds, around a 5-minute walk from the central campus points.

    Generally, the flats are self-contained units and each is provided with a cooker, a refrigerator and basic furniture such as beds, cupboards, a sofa, chairs, a table and a study desk. You will need to provide your own washing machine.

    Flats are allocated according to a priority system based on the course of study, size of family and sponsorship. Sponsored postgraduate students from one of the countries in the Trans-European Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are given the highest priority, followed by sponsored undergraduate students, non-sponsored students and non-degree students.
