St Catherine's College
St Catherine's is amongst the largest colleges in Oxford and its buildings, designed by the Dane Arne Jacobsen, aim to provide a traditional college layout within a thoroughly modern setting. The college wasn't founded until 1962, but it's roots go back to 1868, when the university first allowed students to matriculate without having to belong to a college or academic hall. These non-collegiate students soon began to meet in St Catherine's Hall and called themselves St Catherine's Club. In 1931, this became St Catherine's Society, and 30 years later the college was finally established. Visits possible at most times by appointment.
