Membership & Charges
Common Room membership brings with it most of the privileges including dining rights in Hall, use of the library and sports facilities, room hire and eligibility for membership of most College committees.
Student & Fellow Membership
Graduate students or any category of Fellow, are automatically members of the Common Room.
At the successful completion of the probation period, staff will be eligible to apply for membership of the Common Room for the duration of their appointment.
Partners and spouses can apply to become associate members of the Common Room. Membership entitles them to a college swipe-card that they can use to access the laundry and library and charge items to their college account (also known as battels). It also allows them to join college clubs and societies and dine in the Hall. Learn More.
This scheme invites applications from researchers who are employed by the University of Oxford and are engaged in substantial research, for instance, those at post-doctoral or more senior levels without a college attachment. Applications are considered twice each term. Upcoming deadlines are as follows.
|Michaelmas Term:||Thursday, 21 September 2017||Thursday, 26 October 2017|
|Hilary Term:||Wednesday, 20 December 2017||Thursday, 1 February 2018|

Life Membership of Common Room should bring some benefit to the life of the College and is normally offered only to people having permanent posts or occupations in or near Oxford, inside or outside the University. Candidates normally live in or near Oxford, but may live elsewhere. An annual subscription is payable. Unfortunately, the College is unable to accept self-proposals for Life MCR. All proposals for membership must come via Fellows of the College. The application forms are at the bottom of this page. All enquiries to email@example.com
This is only available to past members of Wolfson College, Oxford and Darwin College, Cambridge. Please complete the form for Common Room Membership and return it to the Common Room Administrator.
Visiting Scholars Membership
This membership covers the application for Visiting Scholars and is only applicable during their time at the College. Learn more.
All members (other than those designated as ‘Honorary’) are required to contribute to the cost of maintaining College facilities, and this is reflected in the Common Room membership charges.
