Wolfson and Covid-19

Emerging from Lockdown

Wolfson College is emerging from lockdown, as the University of Oxford and the UK do. We do so carefully, to protect our most vulnerable, and aware always of the possibility of a second wave.

Please note that for the moment the College is closed to non-members, including Members of Common Room.
