Visiting the College
We're delighted to welcome alumni of St Catharine's back to visit the College at any time of year. This includes exam term, although you should take care not to disturb those preparing for their exams. Please let the Porters know who you are on arrival, and stop into the Development Office if you have time as we would love to see you.
Dining at High Table
Once you have taken your MA, or have graduated from a postgraduate course, you are welcome to dine at High Table with us free of charge once a term and bring a guest at your own expense. It can be a great opportunity to keep in touch with old friends and Fellows. Members are especially encouraged to dine on Tuesdays and Sundays, when a large number of Fellows are usually present.
Find out more about your dining rights here.

Lifelong membership of the St Catharine's Society
The St Catharine’s College Society, of which all alumni of the College are members, is a social organisation governed and run by alumni themselves. Founded in 1923, the Society continues to thrive with over 8,000 members. It is distinct from the College but works closely with it to maintain a lifelong alumni community. The Society organises events for members, provides grants for students and compiles the annual College Magazine. The Society also has various Regional Branches, each with their own separate mailing list and events. A full guide to the Society is provided here.
Café and Bar
All St Catharine’s alumni are welcome to use the College's stunning Catz Café and Bar in the basement of the McGrath Centre. The Catz Café is open to all on weekdays and serves a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks. The Bar is open almost every evening during term time. Speak to our Porters about access.
