We're excited to welcome students back for the start of term.
New City College. How we are keeping you safe on campus.
Please find our most recent Group level Covid Secure Risk Assessment here.
We are committed to providing high standards of education and training in a safe environment for all our students. This means a normal college experience as far as possible, in line with Government guidance.
Students: Please make sure you read and understand the following:
- You will be asked to wear a face covering / mask so please make sure you have one with you when on campus.
- Frequent hand washing is essential to minimise the risk of infection.
- Anti-bacterial spray, wipes and gel are widely available across all our campuses for students and staff to use.
- We have adapted room layouts to support social distancing. Where this is not possible you may be asked to wear a mask.
- Students studying in specialist areas may receive specific industry guidance from their curriculum manager.
- If you have Covid-19 symptoms you should not attend college and should follow the usual absence reporting procedures.
- Make sure you know how to access your college email account. If we need to make any changes, or temporarily close a campus or part of a campus for any reason, we will let all staff and students know through their college email account and on our websites.
- Please remember not to congregate outside the college gates in groups of more than six. The educational setting exemption ends at the gate. Group gatherings of more than six are against the law.

Counselling and Mental Health support
Your mental health and wellbeing is always our priority. Our expert teams listen without judgement and encourage you to connect with others, in the way that most helps you personally.
In addition to our in house team available during term time, New City College students going through a tough time can access free online support with Togetherall, at any time. Whether you're struggling to sleep, feeling low, stressed or unable to cope, Togetherall can help you get support, take control and feel better.
You will have access to a 24/7 online global community and professional support from trained professionals. Togetherall provides a safe space online to get things off your chest, explore your feelings, get creative and learn how to self-manage your mental health and wellbeing.
On Togetherall, you are totally anonymous to other members in the community, and your personal information is kept secure while you are on the site. The college will not be informed if you've signed up to Togetherall or know of your activity on the service unless they are seriously concerned about your safety.
Most members report feeling better and more able to cope with their workloads as a result of using the service and nearly 65% use Togetherall outside of 9-5pm.
