MOOR CLOSE

Moor Close, a neo-Tudor mansion now used as student housing, was built more than 150 years ago, in 1865. In about 1911 millionaire Charles Birch Crisp engaged architect Oliver Hill to enlarge the house and, in subsequent years, add a garden dedicated to Crisp’s daughter, Sylvia. Hill became famous during the ensuing decades and Moor Close, his first commission, in tandem with Sylvia’s Garden, is now a renowned historical landmark in the region. Moor Close houses senior students (over 25); males and females, and couples.

FAMILY HOUSING

If you would like to bring your spouse or your family with you while you study at Newbold, the College provides 36 flats, ranging from single- to three-bedroom flats. Most of these flats are located in the Woodlands area of the campus, about 5 minutes’ walk across campus from the main administration and teaching buildings, the Church Centre and Newbold Primary School. There are 3 flat options available for students:

  • 1 bedroom
  • 2 bedroom
  • 3 bedroom

The College’s family housing accommodation varies in age and facilities. Normally 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.

  • Some flats are furnished
  • Fridge provided
  • No washing facilities. You must supply your own washing machine.

Flats are allocated according to a priority system based on 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 highest priority, followed by sponsored undergraduate students, non-sponsored students and non-degree students.

We recommend that you add your name to the waiting list as soon as possible as it is usually quite considerable. For more information about living in family housing, click here.
