Bikes are one of the most common methods of transport for Wolfson members. Find out below about storing, hiring, and repairing bikes at Wolfson.
The Common Room runs a short-term bicycle hire scheme. There are six bikes, all supplied with locks, lights and helmets. The cost of hire is £2.50 per day, per bike, and is charged on battels. The Lodge holds the keys and will direct you to where they are stored.
The bike workshop is run by volunteers and is usually held once a week, in the staff car park (under the Family Block). Please contact the bike team to check when the next workshop will take place. Please be prompt, as if no one turns up in the first 30 minutes the workshop will close. Notifications will be advertised in the weekly Newssheet and on Facebook. This workshop is for members of Wolfson College only.
Insurance and registration
Owners are strongly advised to insure their bicycles and to join the bike register scheme This will see your cycle registered with the police. Keep bicycles locked to a bike rack when not in use. Bicycles are often stolen from Oxford in general and sometimes from the College too. Any thefts should be reported to the police and our Accommodation Office.
Keeping your bicycle at Wolfson
- Bicycles should either be kept in the designated area at the end of the underground car park beneath the F block flats or one of the outside bike racks. There is pedestrian access to the car park from the Tree Quad. You are not allowed to keep bikes in Wolfson's accommodation.
- Bikes should display a coloured tag available from the Lodge. Without one, your bike may be removed.
- Padlock your bike when not in use. Bikes are frequently stolen from the college and in Oxford. Report any thefts to the Lodge as well as the local police.
- Long term bicycle storage is available for a maximum of one year.
Cycling is a very popular way of getting around Oxford. Be aware that bike theft occurs regularly. You can register your bike for free with the University Cycle Registration Scheme. Doing so will help the police to get your bike back to you if it is stolen.
Bicycles, including electric bikes, can be hired from docking stations across the University. For more information visit the Oxonbike website.

Seismology has come a long way from constraining seismicity and Earth's interior. Owing to recent developments in instrumentation on land, sea, and above, big datasets, numerical techniques, supercomputing and machine learning, we now quantify and understand information from those complex vibrations that continuously excite our planet and its surface at scales from nanometer-scale cracks to global oscillations, and thereby illuminate their underlying processes.
