    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

    After a successful year of Transformation, this year’s Wolfson Explores theme aims to stimulate another rich, productive dialogue across interdisciplinary and cultural borders. So it’s appropriate that our 2020 theme is: BORDERS. We look forward to seeing creative interpretations across a wide range of fields, from the arts to the sciences, from the theoretical to the practical, from macroscopic to microscopic – and perhaps testing the borders between them! Join us at our launch event at this Friday's Halfway Drinks.

    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.
