Floor Common Rooms

The College has a number of excellent communal areas that facilitate interaction between residents. Two common rooms are located on each of the seven levels of NCV. They are popular spaces for residents to meet for regular but informal suppers as each common room includes a kitchenette. Each level has one common room with a plasma, satellite television and one common room which is generally quieter and suitable for reading or private and small group study.

The Main Common Room (MCR)

The Main Common Room on the ground floor of NCV is the main venue for larger community activities and events such as research seminars, performances of music dance and drama, College services and canapé events.The MCR may be booked by residents for large meetings. This is an alcohol free area except by prior arrangement and approval. A kitchen is located at the rear of the Main Common Room for food preparation. The room is also appointed with music facilities and an audio visual system.

Other communal areas in the college include the Reading Room, the Business Centre, the Games Room, the rooftop terrace and two outdoor courtyards.
