Wadham Student Life

Undergraduate Facilities

The state of the art William Doo Undergraduate Centre, incorporating a student bar, café, junior common room, study spaces, art room, bands room, laundry and more opened in January 2021.

A music room, seminar rooms and fully accessible student accommodation open at the same time in the adjacent Dr Lee Shau Kee Building which houses the Wadham Access Centre.

Student Events

Our active SU has around 30 officers who sit on various College committees to represent the views of the student body, playing an integral part in College life. The SU organises a variety of different events and activities for our students, including: fortnightly ‘bops’ (a sort of disco, often involving fancy dress), bar quizzes, karaoke and film nights. Popular annual events include Queer Week (a week-long series of events, talks and seminars celebrating gender diversity and equality which culminates in a large party in the gardens) and a summer music festival, Wadstock, at which student and local bands play.

Welfare

We take the welfare of our community seriously and have a welfare team made up of professionals and peer supporters. SU Welfare Officers also run a number of activities (such as yoga classes) to help students unwind after a hard day studying.
