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 lovely, 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 rental fees are inclusive of utilities and cleaning services.

The College has a variety of study and social spaces shared by all College members. Our students’ association (WCSA) hosts a range of social and academic events for undergraduates and postgraduates alike, including yoga and dance classes, comedy shows, sports activities, weekly seminars, and our annual Wolfson Research Event. These events foster a strong sense of community and ensure Wolfson students are stimulated culturally, socially and intellectually throughout their time here.

Our dining hall serves three meals a day with formal halls held 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 award-winning gardens, a tennis court and a gym with a weights room.

The College is located just beyond the bustle of the city centre, a short walk from the Sidgwick Site (for Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences faculties) and a ten-minute cycle from the city centre and West Cambridge Site.
