Come and study with unrivalled academic support and pastoral care, living onsite as a member of an international, egalitarian and inclusive community of scholars from Cambridge and across the world.
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.
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 |.
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.
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.
The Wolfson College Boat Club annual 24-hour fundraising ergathon is coming! We will line up two ergs next to each other and try to cover a total distance of over 600km.
A University of Cambridge tradition since 1300, these sermons challenge us to consider faith more thoughtfully. University Sermons have inspired the Reformation, the Abolitionist movement, and more. Each year prominent women and men from many different traditions deliver Sermons on topics of particular interest to students. The services are very simple, last about an hour, and are open to all (from gsm.cam.ac.uk).
Wolfson will be delighted to host its inaugural Medics’ Talks and Lunch on Sunday 26 January 2020.
Book end your week with some serious writing time. Work silently in a supportive group, with short breaks for hot drinks and biscuits.
We aim to offer every member of our international community of scholars the opportunity to fulfil their potential and transform society for the good of all.
