Upper, Lower & East Common Room

Wolfson has a single common room organisation where all fellows, graduate students, staff and former members are welcome, along with their guests. There are three common rooms which are open to all members of College.

The Upper Common Room

The Upper Common Room (UCR) above the Dining Hall contains a bar where tea, coffee and drinks are served from 10.30 am–11.30 am, 12.15 pm–2.15 pm and 6.00 pm–8.15 pm. Self-service tea and coffee facilities are also available in the UCR throughout the day and newspapers are kept here.

Accompanied children (under eight-years old) may use the UCR after Saturday lunch and during the AMREF Sunday coffee shops. 

The Lower Common Room

The Lower Common Room (LCR) is generally a quieter area. This is where the magazines and periodicals are kept.

The East Common Room

There is an East Common Room (ECR) (just before the marble steps leading to the Hall) which has a television with DVD player and Sky satellite TV service and board games.

Newspapers and Periodicals 

The Common Room provides daily papers, both British and foreign, and some periodicals and journals free of charge which must not be removed from the Common Room. The selection of newspapers is periodically revised; please contact the Common Room Administrator or the Chair of the Social and Cultural Committee if you wish to suggest a new subscription.
