Welcome to Magdalene
The College is a warm and thriving community in which we strive to make everyone welcome. We are committed to excellence not only in academic life but in all aspects of what we do and we take great pride in the many achievements of the Members of our community.
Years of Study
Rhythms for Life
The Chaplain has the best job in Magdalene. As well as the Chapel and pastoral support, I get to promote the College’s communal health. If we’re honest, this usually means getting people together and giving them something to eat. But it’s been over a year now since Evensong was sung in Chapel, or Wednesday crowds came for curry or hot chocolate, and C. S. Lewis’ chair by the fire in A6, has sat empty.
Mary Astell's Books
During the past year the library staff at Magdalene have adapted to new ways of working and even during its current period of closure the profile of the Old Library has been raised significantly due to the unearthing of Mary Astell’s donation of books. Deputy Pepys Librarian, Miss Catherine Sutherland, researches the history of the collection.
