Join the Old Wolves

An 'Old Wolf' is whoever defines him- or herself as such, i.e., anyone with memories of Wolfson in former times, whether graduate student, ex-Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, or member of staff, and whether currently a member of Common Room or not, who enjoys meeting up with other 'Old Wolves'.

Old Wolves meet termly in College for lunches and sometimes talks. New OWs are always welcome: do come and join us.

There’s no charge, other than the cost of your lunch. A table is reserved in Hall, and lunch is on a self-serve, self-pay basis (cash or battels card at the till). Liquid refreshments, including a glass of wine, are provided (no charge).

The College Archives team will be there to welcome you back to College, and perhaps to eavesdrop on your stories.

Places are limited so please let us know you’d like to come:
