St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, UK

St Catharine’s College was founded as Katherine Hall in 1473 by Robert Woodlark. Woodlark was Provost of King’s College, Cambridge, making St Catherine’s unique in being the only Oxbridge college founded by a serving head of another college. The college is notable for its open court as opposed to the typically favoured closed quadrangle.

In 2015, St Catharine’s became the first college in Cambridge to implement a gender-neutral dress code for formal hall. The college is moderately sized, consisting of approximately 70 fellows, 150 graduate students and 410 undergraduates.

As a conference or meeting venue, St Catharine’s offers state-of-the-art facilities in an excellent central location.
