Come and stay in the heart of London, walking distance from Theatreland, the British Museum, and at the edge of the West End. Only 10 minutes from both Euston and King’s Cross St Pancras, Newman House is the perfect base for a short break, or for a place to continue your studies whilst the University Quarter is nice and quiet.

During the University Vacation periods, Newman House offers a welcoming place to stay in a warm and friendly community.

The heart of Newman House is the Chapel, open to residents at all times of the day, and offers a space of silence for prayer. During the Summer (mid-June-early September) Sunday Mass is at 10.30am only.
