Events and reunions

St Mary’s alumni weekend
Date TBC

We are delighted to announce the introduction of the St Mary’s Annual Alumni Weekend, when the whole campus, including accommodation, will be set aside for St Mary’s alumni, to reconnect with friends and celebrate their time at St Mary’s.

Please note: In view of the COVID-19 outbreak, the University has taken the decision to cancel all alumni events until the end of this academic year. This was not an easy choice and we appreciate it will be disappointing news for those hoping to come along, but we are placing the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors at the heart of our decision. However, these events are postponed rather than cancelled, and we will keep you updated with plans for rescheduling them.

We will keep our website updated through this period, so please check it for further information and we will email you again as the situation develops.

All alumni are invited to attend the weekend, and there will be special events within the weekend for those celebrating significant anniversaries e.g. 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50+ years since graduation.  We plan to organise a range of other activities too, such as opportunities to tour the University, sports fixtures and lectures, and there will be Mass on the Sunday.

We look forward to welcoming you back to St Mary’s, so please put the date in your diary.
