St Catherine's Society
Would somebody in a position to do it please add some history of St Catherine's Society.
- I humbly disagree. According to the Keble website, the keble dining hall seats 300 diners. Catz, on the other hand, seats 350.Philbradley 22:22, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Every single building listed?
The buildings have received a Grade I listing and the college is the only one in Oxford, Cambridge or Durham where every single building has this listing.
Someone else has already marked this as "citation needed", but I'd go further and say it's wrong. The listed buildings at Catz may once have included just about everything of any significance (ie, leaving out only sheds for maintenance etc) but the new buildings put up in the last few years are certainly not listed. According to this site the listed buildings are those on the main college "podium" (bounded by the common room on the north side, the water garden to the west and the playing fields to the east), together with the bike shed, squash court, Master's house, music room and (last and probably least) the "Brick Retaining Wall Running North–South 2 Metres West Of The Music Room, Between This And The Bridge".
- Yeah, until the new buildings were built this was true but now it's not. It still I suspect has more listed buildings than any other college, though I can't cite this. I also think Catz is particularly notable though for the fact that it's post-World War II and yet Grade I listed, but again, no citation from me - rst20xx (talk) 15:07, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
St Cross Church
Jacobsen's plans for the college did not include a chapel: St Cross church on the corner of Manor Road and Longwall Street serves this purpose when required.
St Cross Church is no longer used by St Catz. The Parochial Church Council of St Cross decided to allow Balliol to convert the church into its College Historic Collections Centre. The Chapel belonging to Harris Manchester College is now used when required.
