All of Wolfson's graduate accommodation is on-site or in the vicinity of to the College grounds, which means all facilities are a step away from your door. Most of it is purpose-built with the exception of a number of converted Victorian houses.
The College aims to provide the majority of first-year students with accommodation and many students continue to live in College in subsequent years. It provides accommodation for single students as well as students with partners and students with families.
Students who have left their College accommodation and wish to recover their belongings may now do so as long as they follow the precautions detailed on this webpage.
The current rents and Miscellaneous Charges can be found below. The rent includes all utility charges.
Allocation of accommodation
The College aims to provide as many first year students as possible with accommodation, however, we do not have enough accommodation to guarantee it. You should not assume that we have a room for you until we contact you to confirm this. Learn more.
Photos of various accommodation can be found on the accommodation types page.
- First-year students can apply for accommodation from 1 August to 31 July depending on availability.
- Some accommodation is only available to 30 June each year. Every effort is made to find alternative accommodation for those who need it, but this cannot be guaranteed.
- If you are on a 2 or 3 year course, you can apply in the Accommodation Ballot which is held in January/February each year.
Bringing a vehicle to Oxford
All residents who live on site are required to rent a garage space. Those who live in surrounding properties can park on the grounds but must display the relevant permit.
Collection of keys
