A unique Oxford conference experience


Residential Events:
During our college vacations we can offer you the perfect venue for residential, full-board conferences for up to 250 delegates (if using one main lecture space). Larger conferences can be accommodated by using a combination of our meeting spaces (plus further, ‘standard’ (shared bathroom) accommodation may also be available). The exact dates of the vacations vary year by year, but usually include:

* The third week in December and first week in January
* Four weeks around Easter
* July, August and September

Daytime Events:
Daytime-only conferencing facilities are available year round for up to circa 250 guests  (with wonderful served lunches provided in our iconic dining hall as part of our day-delegate packages). we can also exceed 250 guests by live streaming in to a second lecture theatre. Please contact us for more details.



Several of our dedicated and flexible meeting spaces welcome training courses, day conferences/meetings and events for up to 150 participants during term time.

Multiple-day training courses are also one of our specialities – with the purpose-built Mary Sunley Conference Suite offering the perfect venue year round.

Although we are sadly unable to offer term-time dinners, our experienced in-house chefs offer a wonderful hot, served lunch within our iconic 1960s dining hall and can also provide events with catering ‘extras’ ranging from continental-style ‘breakfasts’ to cakes, pastries and fruit. In certain event spaces, we can also offer a range of drinks reception packages as a special way to end your day with us.

During term time, we have suitable spaces for events ranging from 20 to 150 guests. we can offer 150+ guests with a sandwich lunch & light bites option.

"A big thank you to the team at St Catz who were extremely helpful from the moment we arrived and we were very well looked after. We have had very good feedback for our event [and] also... the layout of the lecture theatre and associated rooms worked extremely well for us. Our compliments also to the Chef as the food was excellent.    "
