Dining in College


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 (; 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.
