If you have any questions, please contact Tracy Fuzzard, Common Room Administrator.

Membership of the Common Room is not, in itself, a formal academic affiliation to Wolfson College or the University of Oxford. Membership of the Common Room is distinct from Membership of College. As such MCR and Associate MCR may not make reference to their membership or use the name, crest or branding of Wolfson College in external publications or on other media/social media (including websites) without the express permission of Wolfson College. We regret that the College IT Office is not able to provide Common Room members with individual IT support, or support with personal equipment or devices.
