St Catherine's College, Oxford

Please note that St Catherine’s is undertaking some building works over the summer/winter of 2018. There is a visual impact from and site access to these works at the entrance of the College and near some of our ensuite bedrooms in the New Quad. The Building works themselves are taking place between 7:30am and 6:00pm Monday-Friday and so will not disturb guests in their bedrooms. The main College site and other facilities such as the resident’s lounge are not affected.  If you require further information before booking, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

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 the College’s 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. They 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.

Please note: Hen or Stag Parties are not permitted out of respect for other guests and parking facilities are unfortunately NOT available for B&B guests.

Smoking: All of our rooms are non-smoking. The College is a no smoking site and so guests wishing to smoke must do so only in the designated exterior smoking areas.

Booking cut offs - please note that we have strict booking cut-offs (usually 11am the working day before for week night booking and 11am on the Friday for weekend and Monday bookings) and are sadly unable to take bookings after the online system has closed down.
