Front entrance

The main entrance on Barton Road

The main entrance to Wolfson College is on Barton Road (on the right as you approach from the city centre, on the left as you approach from the M11), directly opposite Grantchester Road, and a short distance from Junction 12 of the M11. The College has been on this site since its foundation (as University College) in 1965, though it has grown from its humble beginnings in Bredon House to the large complex of buildings and gardens it is today.

Just inside the gates on the right is the main College car park. The light coloured building at the end of the driveway contains the Porters’ Lodge and Club Room on the ground floor, with the Combination Room and Dining Hall upstairs.
