St Catherine’s College is Oxford’s youngest undergraduate college and also one of its largest and most diverse communities. We treasure the traditional values of Oxford college life, but pursue a modern agenda, as reflected by our college motto, “Nova et Vetera” (the new and the old). The College is situated in an ideal location, very close to the City Centre, the Science Area, and University Faculties and Libraries, yet surrounded by meadows, parks and water. The college grounds are extensive and include an amphitheatre and water garden. As a distinguished example of the very best of architecture in the tradition of European Modernism (designed by award-winning architects Arne Jacobsen and Stephen Hodder), our buildings and gardens are both Grade I listed.
