The Tutorial System

The Tutors are the lynchpin of the College's pastoral system. All students are assigned a tutor on arrival, and the tutors meet their tutees both collectively and individually as part of the induction process. They keep regular office hours during term and can also make individual appointments outside those hours by appointment.

Tutors provide advice and practical help on all non-academic matters, and are also a valuable source of official signatures on forms, institutional references and other forms of assistance with Cambridge bureaucracy. We take confidentiality seriously, and what you tell your Tutor about any particular personal issue or situation will remain confidential to your Tutor and (if necessary) the Senior Tutor.

The formal role of Tutors in relation to students differs slightly between undergraduates and graduates, but all students should regard their Tutor as an important resource and source of support.

Chaplaincy Team

Wolfson has a team of ecumenical chaplains representing different faiths, who provide a listening ear and support to College members on request.

The Anglican, Roman Catholic and Free Church Chaplains organise a Christian service of worship in College each term and an Advent Carol Service in early December. Details are included on the Calendar.

Wolfson has a multicultural character and members respect the traditions of others. Different faith traditions have their own meetings, which are advertised on the College noticeboard in the main corridor of Bredon House. Contact details for University Islamic, Jewish and Buddhist societies are also included there.
