Stopped in for a look at a newer college of Oxford (1968) and particularly the hall, as part of our explorations of 1001 Buildings you must see before you die. We got there via the small walkways and towpaths around the area, and were helped...More

I stayed for a conference. Since it was during the summer there weren't any students. However, around 7-8 the cleaners started to work and they would shout to each other from the entrance door or stairs. Since they arrived until they left around 11 it...More

I stayed here overnight while attending a conference. The room was pretty grim, even for student accommodation. Sparse, with an uncomfortable and slightly unstable single bed. There were fixed blinds on the windows which didn't let in much light, so it was a bit dark....More

Breakfast can be mixed: some days you can enjoy succulent strawberry yogurts with an english breakfast of juicy mushrooms, crispy hash browns and and eye-watering sausages, yet sometimes I am left disappointed: the displayed yogurts are not up to scratch, the mushrooms watery, and the...More

St Catherine's (St Catz) was built in the 1960s. To some it is a typical 1960s style building however to architecture students will recognise its striking buildings in glass and concrete to have been created by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. It is now a listed...More
