Our students enjoy the mature college atmosphere, particularly with regard to experiencing Cambridge life in the company of those their own age. At Wolfson you will meet students who have had similar life experiences to you, whether that involves taking on a first degree in your 20’s or later life, studying as an affiliate, or coming to Cambridge in search of a life change or career progression. In terms of location, the college is 5 minutes from the Sedgwick site, where most Humanities faculties (including Law and Economics) and lecture halls are situated, 10 minutes from the University Library and 15 minutes from the town centre.
We offer a variety of sports clubs, a well equipped gym, and social societies ranging from Tango & Salsa dance clubs, Aerobics, Football, Yoga, T’ai Chi, Badminton, Rowing, Table Tennis, Tandem cycling, and many more. For a full list of our current clubs and societies, please see the WCSA website. We are also lucky enough to host the increasingly popular Wolfson Howler comedy night which has seen headliners such as Russell Howard and Chris Addison.
With regard to welfare, we are experienced at recognising the levels of support required and dealing with specific problems experienced by mature students. Along with a dedicated tutorial team (each student has a pastoral tutor who looks after their welfare throughout their studies), there are student welfare officers who have been trained to provide peer support.
