Wolfson is a modern college in a traditional setting positioned on the banks of the River Cherwell. It was founded to provide a stimulating and supportive environment specifically for graduate students. The college is open, informal, diverse, democratic and multidisciplinary. Its ethos has been carried through from its founding President Sir Isaiah Berlin, and is embedded in the college structure up to this very day
