St. Catherine's College

The youngest undergraduate Oxford College, St. Catherine's is a distinguished example of the very best of architecture in the tradition of European Modernism. The College, designed by the Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen, described by Pevsner as "a perfect piece of architecture", is one of only a few pieces of post-1945 architecture to be Grade 1 listed. Jacobsen’s buildings are complemented by three new residential blocks, built by Stephen Hodder MBE, two in the early 1990s and a third in 2004.


Accomodation is provided in purpose built en-suite study bedrooms

Historic Oxford

Honey-gold buildings and a riverside setting are just part of Oxford's unique appeal that once visited is unforgettable. College quadrangles and gardens provide a tranquil foil to a compact and beautiful city centre which is lively all the year round.
Well renowned as a seat of learning and tradition for over 800 years, Oxford has centuries of history to unveil whilst at the same time has not failed to remain in the present. With all the high street shops and many contemporary bars and restaurants, Oxford has a traditional covered market, gift and antique shops as well as some of the finest bookshops in the world. Traditional pubs can be found that were once frequented by famous writers such as C S Lewis and J R R Tolkien and more recently, Inspector Morse.
