The Lodge

The Lodge or Reception is staffed 24 hours a day in case of emergencies, and is open daily from 7 am–11 pm. The Lodge’s Receptionists and Night Porters are the first point of contact with Wolfson, and the College remains open 7 days a week.

The Lodge receptionists will give information on opening times and availability of College facilities, hand over keys to the music rooms, squash courts and help you if you have locked yourself out of your room. They sell stamps, stationery, washing powder and other items. For a full list of items please ask at the Lodge.
