Inner courtyard
New College Residence

Established in 1962, New College is housed in three buildings, Wetmore Hall, built in 1964, Wilson Hall, 1969, and the New College Residence added in 2003 to the south-west of the two original buildings. The two older buildings dominate the north-west corner of Willcocks and Huron Streets, presenting linear, hard edged facades on their street sides and curvilinear interior shapes, creating a serpentine inner courtyard. The new Residence is on the south side of Willcocks, west of the Faculty Club, with two interconnected wings paralleling Spadina Avenue.

New College offers specific programs which are open to Arts and Science students such as African Studies, Buddhism, Psychology and Mental Health, Caribbean Studies, Equity Studies and Paradigms and Archetype Studies.
