Privileges & Dining

In light of recent COVID developments, we have taken the decision to postpone all January Formal Halls. More details will be shared soon. All February Dinners bookings will be available soon. 

As a Roll Member you are still very much a part of the College community. You can dine in College three times a year, attend alumnae events and enjoy other privileges.

We are always delighted to welcome you back to College. Your benefits include dining in College three times a year (once per term), on payment and notice, with up to three paying guests. Formal Halls and Subject Formal Halls are held on Wednesdays, and occasionally on Thursdays, during Full Term and are occasions when Senior Members and students dine together. Gowns are worn at all Formal Halls.

Bookings open one month before the date of the event. Please see the dates for 2022 below. You will need to book online with the event details below. Places are limited for each dinner, and we cannot guarantee that you will be able to join. For any questions please contact the Roll Office roll@newn.cam.ac.uk or call 01223 335757. 

The costs for 2021/2022 for Roll Members are shown below:

  • Formal Hall: seated in the main body of the Hall, £25 per person (bring your own wine).
