Magdalen College has built its approach to student life on the foundation of Catholic teaching about human nature and purpose, which itself draws upon classical philosophical anthropology and the personalist philosophy of Pope Saint John Paul II. While the principles remain unchanged, the application of these principles develop over time and the college continually seeks to improve the services it provides to its students and the quality of our common life. This is done in part by reflecting on our own historical experience as an institution as well as learning from our peer institutions. The written principles and policies that guide student life are available in the Magdalen College Student Handbook 2022-2023.
In case of emergency after regular office hours, please contact the on-call Dean of Student Life at (603) 456-2656, then press 7 when prompted.
