Warden's preface

Whether you are a fresher or a returning student, I want to welcome you warmly to Wadham. This celebrated College is a tolerant, inclusive community with distinguished scholarship and learning at its heart. We expect you to study hard during your time with us and to take all the opportunities that Wadham will certainly offer as you broaden your knowledge and stretch your minds over the next years. Each one of you is here because we believe that you have the ability and the potential to benefit from the array of intellectual possibilities that the College offers to its undergraduate and graduate members.

As well as being a community of scholars, Wadham is a home to its students and a place that is full of activity and promise. You will make lifelong relationships here and we want everyone to enjoy a happy and a liberal environment where people are friends, treating each other, and the College itself, with respect. It is for that reason that this online handbook sets out some of the rules and conventions that govern life at Wadham. Their purpose is to provide a setting in which we may all live and work harmoniously together within these beautiful buildings and gardens.
