Student Families

Since its inception, Wolfson has led the way in opening up postgraduate research to students and academics with families. We offer more family and couples accommodation than any other college at the University of Oxford, and since 1974 we have operated an on-site Day Nursery.

Wolfson College Day Nursery

Wolfson provides an in-house Day Nursery with priority for graduate students, as well as a playground. Learn more about the Day Nursery.


There is an active family society that organises a variety of events including a welcome party for new arrivals and a weekly playgroup.


Partners and spouses can apply to become associate members of the College’s Common Room. Membership entitles them to a College card that they can use to access the laundry and library and charge items to their College account (also known as battels). Members can also join College clubs and societies and dine in the Hall. Learn more.
