Stay in Arne Jacobsen’s Modernist masterpiece in the beautiful city of Oxford

St Catherine’s, Arne Jacobsen’s modernist Oxford masterpiece, is conveniently located in a peaceful setting within the city of Oxford. Perfect as a base for exploring the wider city of Oxford and the surrounding Cotswolds, during the College vacations we often offer bed & breakfast accommodation within our beautiful grounds.

Guests are accommodated in our simple, light and airy single study bedrooms (occupied by students in term time) in buildings of modern architectural interest with windows largely overlooking our lawned quadrangle, gardens, trees, river or meadows. Please note that twin bedrooms are not available. Our original (1960s) buildings are Grade 1 Listed – something incredibly rare for post-Second World War architecture – and showcase Danish architect Arne Jacobsen’s iconic modernist design, echoing traditional Oxford values, but with a unique modernist twist.

Are you an architect or interested in design?
Enjoy both the “Jacobsen experience” and the life of an Oxford College!

We are particularly pleased to welcome visitors interested in architecture, design and European modernism to the College. Guided group tours and group lunches at “High Table” (with original ‘Oxford’ chairs and Jacobsen cutlery) can be arranged as well as accommodation during our vacations. Original, 1960s Jacobsen bedrooms are often available upon request.

If you are an architectural practice or school, why not hold a unique away day, retreat or even a Christmas dinner at the College (dedicated daytime facilities available year-round with accommodation packages also offered in vacations)!

"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."
