Founded in 1473, St Catharine’s College – affectionately known as ‘Catz’ – is one of 31 self-governing colleges of the University of Cambridge, located in the heart of the city. This new history is published to mark its 550th anniversary and chronicles its rise from one of the university’s smallest colleges, through successive expansions, including major twentieth- century building programmes. Today it is a welcoming, thriving and vibrant academic community of about a thousand students, Fellows and staff.
