St Catherine's College, Oxford

University Residence

Modern study bedrooms set in tranquil College grounds amidst iconic, modernist architecture. Large windows mostly overlook lawns, trees and open countryside.

St Catherine’s is conveniently located in a peaceful setting within the City of Oxford - just a short walk (less than 1 mile) from the City centre. The original College buildings are Grade 1 Listed and showcase Danish architect Arne Jacobsen’s iconic modernist design, echoing historic Oxford values but with a uniquely modern twist.

Guests are accommodated in simple, light and airy study bedrooms (which are occupied by students during term times). All rooms on offer are for single occupancy only and are basically but comfortably furnished and serviced daily. Rooms are not equipped to a five-star standard (NB: no TVs) but are provided with bed linen, towels, toiletries and tea & coffee making facilities. All ensuite bedrooms have their own private shower and toilet. A warm welcome awaits from St Catherine's Lodge Porters (manned 24/7).
