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'!


Our College is for mature students who are actively engaged with the world. At Wolfson, you'll live, study, and socialise with mature students from around 100 different countries.

We have no hierarchies: there's no high table, our social spaces are shared by everyone. You're just as likely to sit next to the College President as you might a PhD student from another continent.


All our undergraduates are guaranteed accommodation on site for their first 3 years, whether it’s a single, en suite, shared house, or family flat.

All blocks have self-catering kitchen facilities, and rental fees are inclusive of utilities and cleaning.

Our dining hall serves 3 high-quality meals a day with Formal Halls held twice a week during term time.  


  • A 24-hour, spacious library, with an extensive academic skills programme
  • A range of study and social spaces, including a central Club Room with a coffee and drinks bars
  • A fully equipped gym operated by our active student society, WCSA

Location and student life

We’re a College that believes in giving opportunities for life-long learning, and we specialise in offering the academic, professional, and personal support that mature students need. To help you hit the ground running, we offer WolfWorks, a specially-designed study skills programme; our library is open 24/7, 365 days a year; and we have exceptional tutors to guide your return to learning.

At Wolfson, you'll be able to find the sporting, social, cultural, and intellectual activities that suit you. You can join our rowing crews, sign up for the Wolfson Entrepreneur Society, laugh along at our Wolfson Howler comedy night, sing in our choir, or grow your own veg in the student garden. If you join our Interdisciplinary Research Hubs, you'll unite with Wolfson students, Fellows, and members in tackling the big issues facing the world today.

Located on a single site just beyond the city centre, surrounded by glorious gardens and with facilities including a tennis court and gym, Wolfson is an inspiring and supportive environment where you can fulfil your potential and help change the world.
