Introduction

As one of Cambridge's newest colleges, Wolfson is proud to be a modern institution with a pioneering record, the first Cambridge college to admit men and women as students and fellows on an equal basis. The College is now a mature institution and plays a full part in the life of the University of Cambridge. The college is cosmopolitan, with 80 nationalities represented amongst current students, and egalitarian, with no high table or senior combination room, and all facilities shared between staff and students alike.

The college is a distinctive venue, located on Barton Road, Newnham (a 20-minute walk southwest of the city centre) with a range of traditional and modern styles. Cambridge is within easy reach of the M11, London and other major cities.

Wolfson is home to the purpose-built Chancellor's Centre, with a bright foyer area and two floors of meeting rooms, ranging in capacity from 2 delegates to 50 each. The fantastic Lee Hall is perfect for large conferences up to 200 people and the unique Dining Hall and Combination Room can host receptions and dinners for up to 150 diners and 48 diners respectively.

Catering

Wolfson College offers a wide range of catering options, from a sandwich lunch to a 5-course formal dinner. Our formal dining menus offer a variety of dishes to suit your event and can be hosted in one of our College dining rooms - the Council Room, Combination Room or Dining Hall.

For conferences or meetings, a daily delegate rate is available, which includes refreshments, lunch and room hire.
