    Onsite Accommodation

    Our peaceful location to the southwest of the city centre means you are away from the crowds yet close to many University departments and the University Library as well as the Sidgwick and West Cambridge sites. Our onsite accommodation allows us to guarantee accommodation to undergraduates for the duration of their course and, although not guaranteed, offer PhD students up to three years of College accommodation.

  • 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.
