    Onsite Accommodation

    With 450 comfortable rooms and flats onsite, we are the only Cambridge College to offer both undergraduates and PhD students three full years of onsite accommodation. Our peaceful location west of the city centre means you are away from the crowds yet close to many University departments, the Library and the Sidgwick and West Cambridge sites.

  • Wolfson Explores

    What does it mean to transform? What does it feel like to be transformed? How do we transform society for the good of all? In 2019, these are some of the questions we'll be posing at Wolfson College in a new year-long programme of events and activities. Launched on 18 January 2019, and continuing throughout the rest of the year, it will feature talks, art exhibitions, music concerts, and much more — all on the theme of Wolfson Explores | Transformation |.

    The Community

    Wolfson is a lively and welcoming place to live, with an engaged student community and a wide-ranging programme of events from live concerts to academic lectures to weekly welfare tea – with cake. Our Porters are the friendliest in Cambridge and our Howler comedy nights are legendary. We host visiting academics from all over the world and – with no High Table and social spaces shared by all – you will be stimulated culturally, socially and intellectually.

    Teaching & Learning

    We are the College of choice for world-class postgraduates, mature undergraduates and returning learners. We offer excellence in teaching and support through a cohort of outstanding supervisors and Directors of Studies who allow every member of College to realise their full potential. Our active and engaged Fellowship underpins and enhances the College experience, providing mentorship and guidance both academically and professionally.

Our diversity helps foster new perspectives and new insights in every field of scholarship.
