Welcome to New College House

New College House is F&M's newest student residence and, perhaps, the most visible affirmation of the College's commitment to sustainability -- being the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified structure on campus. The building encompasses several distinctive spaces on its first floor, including an oversize Great Room that serves variously as a living room, library, theater, performance area, and exhibit gallery. The monthly lunch series, "What Matters?" and the First Friends Peer Mentoring Program are examples of the many opportunities the College Houses create for learning outside the classroom, bringing in a variety of speakers to illustrate the different influences -- some unexpected -- that contribute to one's personal and professional development.

You can learn more about the experience of living in the Houses in "Learning After Dark," by Dean Hammer, the Don of New College  House.
