Social and Cultural committee (SCC)

Social and Cultural Committee (SCC) allocates and approves money for all the College’s clubs, societies and social functions.

Its sub-committees encompass most of the life of the Wolfson community. SCC’s Sub-committees are: Ball, Bar Committee (BarCo), Entertainments (“Entz”), Arts, Music, Romulus, Sports, Families.

Provided you can draw up a credible budget and a good case for expenditure, practically any worthy endeavor can be supported by the Common Room Fund, which is overseen by the Social and Cultural Committee.


Ball Committee

Every year, a committee of students is invited to organise a Christmas Ball on a theme of their choice, and a summer event to cater for the whole community. This is a great opportunity to get to know people and to work as a team to put together an exciting programme of entertainment.

Bar Committee

The Cellar Bar and Games Room is run by a student committee known as 'Barco'. Learn more.

Art Society

Wolfson has a well-established reputation as the college in Oxford that takes contemporary art seriously. The Arts Society aims to bring together members of College, from different cultures and disciplines, who are interested in the visual arts. The Society organises exhibitions, displays, art classes and runs a picture loan scheme. The committee meets twice a term at 1pm on Wednesdays of Weeks 0 and 5. Learn more.

Music Society

We have an active Music Society with regular concerts in the Leonard Wolfson Auditorium featuring professional musicians, including the Fournier Trio. If your would like to get involved please email the Art Administrator.
