St Catherine's College

St Catherine's College is one of the largest of the 38 colleges which comprise Oxford University. It is a mixed college for some 500 graduates and undergraduates in all disciplines. The college is in Holywell Great Meadow, to the north-east of the old city. It occupies a rectangular site of just over eight acres, approached by Napper's Bridge from Manor Road, across a branch of the river Cherwell. The original building, completed in 1964, was designed by the Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen. It is in a modern style and has been awarded the Bronze Medal of the RIBA.

Apart from the River and Meadow buildings and the more recently constructed Arumugam Building, the college's principal features are the largest dining hall in Oxford, the Wolfson library and the Bernard Sunley building which houses a lecture theatre, seminar rooms and the graduate common room.

The Oxford Energy Seminar forms part of the education and research that the college sponsors and accommodates during the vacation period.

The Seminar will have exclusive use of the Mary Sunley conference building.
