At NCC, we have several indoor and outdoor social spaces for students. Here you will be able to catch up with friends, take part in fun activities, and take a break from your study programme.

A wide choice of freshly prepared meals, snacks and drinks are available from the Refectory and Café at competitive prices. Snacks and drinks are available from vending machines throughout the college.

The Refectory and Café operate a cashless system operated through student ID card badges. Further information can be found in the Parents Zone and also here on the Smartcard.

There is a limited fund available to help students with free college meals which can be accessed through the College Bursary Fund.
