St Catherine’s College, known informally as Catz, is one of Oxford’s youngest colleges and offers a large and diverse community, with students from over 60 nations. We asked some of our students and staff what makes Catz such a unique and special place – click the ‘This is Catz’ image to hear what they had to say!
We offer a wide range of subjects at undergraduate level, with a roughly even split between science and arts. We also have a large postgraduate community and host a number of visiting students. The College has an overwhelming atmosphere of openness and friendliness in which everyone is quickly made to feel at home.

A Vibrant Student Community
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.
