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

              Why stay overnight?

              Staying at St Catherine’s is a pleasure and is a perfect accompaniment to any conference experience. We offer guests an environment in which to relax and recharge.
              Our light and airy study bedrooms help ensure a great night’s sleep. Windows overlook the lawns, trees and open countryside.
              Staying within the college offers convenience for conference attendees. They can simply walk from their rooms to the conference venue. This allows guests to fully immerse themselves in the conference experience without the hassle of commuting.
              When lodging overnight, guests also have greater opportunity to connect and network. During meals or downtime, they can engage in informal discussions, build relationships, and exchange ideas.  St Catherine's College offers a peaceful venue that fosters intellectual stimulation and creativity. Our facilities make the perfect backdrop for conferences that seek not only to inform but to inspire. The shared accommodation environment fosters a sense of community, facilitating networking and the potential for collaborations beyond the conference itself.

              How many guests can stay?

              We can accommodate around 350 delegates and rooms are serviced daily.

              250 of our rooms are ensuite as well as having wired and wireless internet access.

              We also have ‘standard’ rooms (with shared bathroom facilities). We provide tea and coffee making facilities, linen, towels and toiletries.
              Hair dryers, ethernet cables and adaptors can be obtained from our lodge.

              What is the check-in process for event guests?

              Check-in takes place from 1400 at our Lodge (which is manned 24/7 and is your first port of call for all questions or issues while on site – tel. +44 (0)1865 271700). Check-out is by 10:00am on the day of departure.

              Travelling to St Catherine’s College

              Please note that parking across the city is  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.

              "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 to the Chef as the food was excellent."
