Institute of Continuing Education

 

Situated in the very heart of the city on one of the original medieval routes, St Catharine's College is close to both King’s College and Queens’ College, yet just a short walk to the main teaching sites. St Catharine's offers graceful architecture and delightful courtyard gardens.

The history of the College is reflected in the names used for its intriguing mix of old and new buildings. St Catharine’s College was founded in 1473 by Robert Woodlark, former Chancellor of the University. The re-building of the main courtyard began in 1674, and the Chapel was completed in 1704. The latest phase of building was completed in 2013: the McGrath Centre includes a bar and Junior Common Room.

You can choose a standard single room or an en suite room. St Catharine's provides served buffet-style dinners on most evenings and a traditionally-served Closing Dinner.

Please note: there are no ground-floor en suite rooms. Some rooms accessible by lift - please specify if you require a room with easy access.

Facilities include: en suite and standard rooms; wifi access in rooms; computer room; bed linen and towels; tea/coffee facilities in room; laundry room; Chapel; modern College bar

The University's International Summer Programmes are an embodiment of our mission 'to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence'.
