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, employees of Wolfson College 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. Please complete the form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org August 2020 this form is currently being updated
