Dining in College

Open
<

Catz alumni are entitled to dine at College up to three times a year. Alumni are warmly invited to dine at High Table on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during term time. There is no entitlement to bring a guest; however this can occasionally be waived and a guest, such as a partner, welcomed.

Booking must be finalised at least a week in advance by contacting the Development Office (development.office@stcatz.ox.ac.uk; 01865 281596). The cost is £30 per person, which includes wine, or £20 per person without wine. You should arrive at 7pm, with dinner beginning at 7.15pm.

Please note that there is a set quorum for meals among the Senior Common Room. In the unlikely event that quorum is not reached and dinner is cancelled, we will give you 24 hours’ notice.

Gaudy Schedule

Open
<

As Oxford traditions go, your Gaudy is one of the most distinguished, offering the opportunity to reminisce with old faces and to reflect on the times that have passed since your College days.

As you may already know, we sadly had to postpone the gaudies planned for 2020 and 2021 during the pandemic. We are therefore pleased to announce that we will begin hosting these much-anticipated events again.

We plan to hold two gaudies per year for the next two years, and the schedule is as follows:

1973 – 1982 Matriculands’ Gaudy: Saturday 25 June 2022

1983 – 1992 Matriculands’ Gaudy: Saturday 24 September 2022

1993 – 2002 Matriculands’ Gaudy: Saturday 24 June 2023

2003 – 2012 Matriculands’ Gaudy: Saturday 23 September 2023

Get involved with Catz

St Catherine’s is always looking for ways to involve our alumni, in a variety of ways. Whilst financial support for the College’s fundraising priorities is vital, you may also be able to help by giving your time or practical assistance. This might be through speaking at an event, writing articles for CatzEye and The Year, or offering careers advice and mentoring to our students.
