Live at Catz

"Having grown up moving from country to country, I was used to adapting quickly. Nevertheless I have never settled in somewhere as quickly as I have at St Catz. It soon became a home, and I very quickly made friends I can see myself being in touch with for a lifetime." Juliane, Law student

St Catherine's offers excellent undergraduate facilities, including a spacious and comfortable Junior Common Room (JCR) with a large bar, television, pool tables, games machines, newspapers and vending machines. Regular student-run social events are organised throughout term such as open-mic nights and charity fundraisers, alongside a wide variety of other activities to help students settle into university life. The JCR (a term which also refers to the undergraduate student body) elects a committee of current students who represent undergraduates both within College and also to the wider Oxford University Student Union (OUSU).

St Catherine's prides itself on being a close-knit community with a strong atmosphere of openness and friendliness. Once students are accepted for study at St Catherine's there is an enormous commitment from the tutors to support them through to the end of their studies, and many graduates keep in touch with their tutors long after leaving College. There are many sources of help within College: the Dean, Junior Deans (postgraduate students who are qualified peer-supporters), harassment advisors, the College Doctor and a College Nurse who holds a daily surgery on site in term time. The JCR appoints both male and female Welfare Reps alongside a team of trained peer supporters.
