Undergraduate Study



I thought Cambridge would be too traditional and stuck in the past for me, but then I found Wolfson and I just thought, 'this is the perfect place'!


Wolfson is a modern College that combines many Cambridge traditions with a friendly and open atmosphere. Our diverse community includes students from more than 80 different nationalities, of many different ages and origins, and from all walks of life.

As a mature College, Wolfson only accepts applications from students aged 21 and over. Half of our undergraduates are aged between 21 and 23, but we welcome students of all ages.

Wolfson is home to around 150 undergraduates and we offer on-site accommodation for the duration of your course. There are a variety of rooms available, including singles, en suites, shared houses and family flats. All blocks have access to self-catering kitchen facilities and rent prices are inclusive of utilities and cleaning services.

The College has a variety of study and social spaces shared by all College members, and we have one all-students’ association (WCSA) which hosts events for undergraduates and postgraduates alike. This helps to build a strong community feeling as students can easily come together to study and socialise. Social events include yoga and dance classes, comedy, jazz and club nights, as well as sports. Academic events include public lectures, seminars from both the Arts and Humanities Society and the Science Society, as well as our annual Wolfson Research Event.

Our dining hall serves three meals a day with formal halls twice a week during term time. The Lee Library is open 24/7 and hosts a wide range of skills workshops. We also have beautiful gardens, a tennis court and gym with a weights room.

The College is located just outside of the bustle of the city centre, a short walk from the Sidgwick Site (for arts, humanities, and social sciences departments) and a ten-minute cycle from the physical science departments at the West Cambridge Site.
