Middle Common Room

Middle Common Room

St Catherine's offers excellent graduate facilities, including one of the largest college libraries and well-equipped computer rooms. Sport, music and drama enjoy a high profile in the college; on site there are squash courts, a gymnasium and punt house, a Music House for practice and performance, and theatres for both indoor and outdoor productions.

The focus of graduate life in the College is the Middle Common Room, which is situated in a quiet part of College, and comprises a lounge, bar, television room and private courtyard garden. With over 250 members of many different nationalities, it is one of the liveliest and most stimulating in Oxford.

The MCR Committee organises a varied academic, social and sporting programme. Once a week a special graduate dinner is served in Hall and there are regular graduate seminars. The annual Graduates’ Dinner takes place in May. Graduates are also members of the Junior Common Room (undergraduate) and have access to all its facilities.
