The University of Oxford will be hosting its next Open Day on Friday 15 September 2023.

We hope you can join us at Catz during this event, to see our college, chat to our students, and to equip yourself with the information that you need to make an informed decision about your future!


We’re open all day, with our friendly student ambassadors giving tours of the College from 9am-6pm.

Not only will you get to find out more about the College, this is also a great opportunity to speak with current students here at Catz about what their experience is like.

No questions are off-limits – ask us anything!


Please note that, due to essential maintenance works, we are unable to provide tours of the Dining Hall, Library or Junior Common Room areas at this time.
