Additional information

The youngest Oxford undergraduate College, St Catherine's is a distinguished example of the very best of architecture in the tradition of European Modernism. The College, designed by the Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen, described by Pevsner as a perfect piece of architecture, is one of only a very few pieces of post-1945 architecture to be Grade 1 listed. Jacobsen's buildings are complemented by three new residential blocks, built by Stephen Hodder MBE in the early 1990s and, more recently, in 2004. St Catherine's offers the conference delegate the benefits of modern accommodation (with up to 250 en suite rooms) excellent catering (a dining hall, the largest in Oxford, which seats up to 380) and up-to-date meeting and technical facilities, whilst being only a short walk from the cloisters and quads of traditional Oxford. It lies in extensive gardens and wooded areas just to the north of Magdalen Bridge in the Holywell Great Meadow, between two branches of the River Cherwell.
