City of Wolverhampton College is a further education college located in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England.

It was formed in September 1999 as the result of a merger of Wulfrun College in Wolverhampton and Bilston Community College in Bilston.[1]

Upon this merger, it was initially known as Wolverhampton College, but in the aftermath of Wolverhampton gaining city status in December 2000, it adopted its current title.

A new campus has since opened on Wellington Road in Bilston, replacing the old Bilston Community College buildings nearby which had originally been the buildings of Bilston Girls High School.

The college offers courses to students from Wolverhampton and the surrounding area. Courses offered include NVQs, GCSEs, BTECs, A Levels and Access courses. In addition, the college offers some higher education courses in conjunction with the University of Wolverhampton.
