St Catherine's College

Catz is Oxford’s youngest undergraduate college and one of its largest and most diverse communities. We treasure the traditional values of Oxford college life, but pursue a distinctly modern agenda.

Students at St Catherine’s College

We offer a wide range of subjects, with a broadly even split between science and arts. The college is proud of its place at the forefront of innovation, research and contemporary culture. Its modern architecture (Grade I listed) and restful open spaces give the college a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The vast majority of undergraduates live in college for three years. There are excellent facilities, including a large college library, well-equipped computer rooms and a spacious and comfortable Junior Common Room. Sport, music, art and drama enjoy a high profile in the college; on site there are squash courts, a gymnasium, a punt house, a music house for practice and performance, and theatres for both indoor and outdoor productions.

St Catherine’s is...

…the best of both worlds – modern but still has traditional aspects. I would definitely call it home.
Madeleine

…a diverse community of students, coming from different backgrounds, studying different subjects, and having different interests.
Nina

…a place where our tutors seem to really care about our development outside of academic work as well as within it.
George

...a tranquil environment, due to the lack of tourists and the surrounding nature, which makes Catz a special place for me.
Teodor

…such a friendly place with great student welfare!
