Ensuite accommodation for up to 250 guests

During vacations, the College offers accommodation to both our residential conference guests and, where we have availability, to independent bed and breakfast visitors.


Staying at St Catherine’s is a pleasure in itself and is a perfect accompaniment to any conference experience. We offer guests an ideal environment in which to relax and recharge, allowing them to make the most of their time with us.

Our light and airy study bedrooms help to ensure a great night’s sleep. Their large windows overlook the green of lawns, trees and open countryside, blurring the boundary between inside and outside. We can accommodate around 350 delegates in total and rooms are serviced daily.

250 of our rooms have en-suite facilities as well as wired and wireless internet access. We also have a number of ‘standard’ rooms (with shared bathroom facilties) which can be used to supplement our accommodation at certain times of the year. We provide tea and coffee-making facilities, linen, towels and toiletries. Hair dryers, Ethernet cables and adaptors can be hired/purchased from our Lodge.

Check-in takes place from 2:00pm at our Lodge (which is manned 24/7 and is your first port of call for all queries or issues whilst on site – tel. +44 (0)1865 271700). Check-out is by 10:00am on the day of departure.


Please note that parking across the city is extremely limited and that parking is not generally available to guests at the College. Oxford has excellent public transport links to enable guests to travel into the city without use of a car.

Park and ride is the easiest way to get into Oxford by car. There are five park and ride sites located around Oxford’s ring road, with regular bus services to the city centre, and – from some car parks – to the hospitals. It is easy to use. You simply park your car and use a bus to get to your destination. Please note that separate charges apply for both the car park and bus journey. The Thornhill park and ride site is the most convenient in terms of bus stops near the College.

"The tranquil setting close to town was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful, accommodation was clean and well-serviced. Also it was reassuring to have the 24 hour Lodge Porter service. I would have no hesitation in returning again."
