Catered Option

NCV is a primarily self-catered college. Every studio has its own kitchenette and each apartment has its own kitchen and dining area. This is great if you like independence to eat whatever you feel like, whenever you like.

We recognise that not everyone wants to cook all their own meals so NCV offers a meal plan through the New College cafe.

For a weekly cost of $59.00 (includes GST), NCV residents will receive membership of the Meal Plan. NCV is a predominately self-catered college so fees associated with the optional catering plan are additional. NCV residents can eat in at the New College Cafe or get take-away. The NCV Meal Plan is segmented into short periods that align with the stages of the UNSW Academic Calendar (totalling approx 43 weeks). The meal plan periods are:

  • O'Week 1
  • Semester 1a
  • Mid Semester 1 Break
  • Semester 1b
  • Study Period 1
  • Exams 1
  • Mid Year Break (TBC)
  • O'Week 2
  • Semester 2a
  • Mid Semester 2 Break
  • Semester 2b
  • Study Period 2
  • Exams 2

How does the NCV Meal Plan work?

  • NCV residents must pay the full cost of catering for any period with NCV reception by the Thursday before each catering period commences. These payments will appear on your college fees statement summary. NCV residents will receive credit on their student card each Monday morning.
  • NCV residents must pay the full cost of catering for any period with NCV reception by the Wednesday before each catering period commences. These payments will appear on your college fees statement summary.
  • Membership of the meal plan entitles you to obtain lunch and dinner from New College from Monday to Friday.  Other items such as confectionary, cold drinks, coffee, and ice creams can be purchased and paid for separately.Unused meal credits can be used for Saturday lunch and dinner and brunch and dinner on Sundays.
  • Meal times are:  Lunch 12.00 noon to 2.30 pm and Dinner 5.30 to 8.00 pm.  You will be granted entry to New College, by using your UNSW student card, during these times. You are only entitled to visit the ground floor dining area of New College.
  • Please note that occasionally the Dining Room and Café will be closed at 4.30pm due to New College formal dinners or functions.  You will be warned in advance when these events occur. 
  • Purchases from the café can be deducted from your weekly meal credits on the POS system.
  • Note that any unused credits will be cancelled at the end of each period or when the resident leaves NCV, whichever occurs first.The New College Cafe
