Nescot is located between the Surrey Downs and the Surrey Hills, within some of the loveliest countryside in the South East. Ewell is a historic and picturesque yet lively town with low crime rates and excellent schools, property, leisure and transport facilities. The perfect balance of urban culture with rural tranquillity has seen the borough consistently feature on Channel 4's Location, Location, Location 'best place to live in Britain' list! So you can enjoy all the benefits of rural tranquillity without missing out on the cosmopolitan and cultural buzz of big city life.
Although we are just half an hour from central London - with frequent trains to Victoria and Waterloo and peak trains to London Bridge - many of the college’s students and staff come to the college by rail from south-west London as the local station, Ewell East (Victoria 30 minutes) is only a 5 minute walk. However, there is also easy access to the A3 and M25 for students and staff travelling by car from the south-east, and there are large free car parks for staff and students. The College is conveniently located roughly halfway between Heathrow and Gatwick making it attractive to the International student market.
One of the benefits of our location is the key place Nescot occupies in the heart of our community. The college is a much loved facility for the general public. We run key community events throughout the year and have a high profile in the cultural calendar. Working here will give you all the benefits of being part of a tight-knit community with a strong identity, within easy reach of the capital.
Nescot is a single campus college with 70 acres of land and over 27,000 m² of floor space. Since September 1997 the College has opened a number of new buildings. These include the Visual and Performing Arts and Built Environment Buildings, the Learning Resources Centre, and the Nestots Day Nursery. The College aims to have a new build for 2013.
The College has many well-equipped laboratories, workshops, studios and classrooms to support its wide ranging curriculum offer. There are good quality flexible open access IT facilities in the Learning Resources Centre. The IT network reaches parts of the College allowing access to the Internet and the College Intranet. There is a continuous expansion and upgrading of the facilities available on the IT network to support the development of new teaching and learning methods.
The Sports Hall provides recreational facilities, exercise classes and a well equipped fitness centre. Coupled with the excellent outside sports facilities it can cater for a wide range of student and staff recreational needs and also acts as a focus for coaching courses. The facilities, which are used extensively by students and staff, are also available to external organisations and individual members of the community.
The Adrian Mann Theatre is a fully equipped working theatre with an audience capacity of 230. It is used to support the College’s performing arts courses and provides a venue for many productions by local theatrical and dance groups.
