At St Mary’s whether you decide to live in university accommodation, at home or further afield, we want you to know that you’ll be supported here.


Meeting new people and socialising 

Welcome week social events

There are lots of activities scheduled in the first few weeks of term to give you a chance to socialise and make friends. During welcome week there will be a range of social events scheduled, including thing specifically tailored to our local and commuter students.

Social media

The University and the Students' Union set up Facebook groups for incoming students to give you a chance to connect with other people on your course, in your halls or commuters. This is a great way to find the people that will be travelling into campus from the same area as you.

Societies and sports teams

St Mary's is home to countless societies and sports teams that you can join, it's a great way to meet people that share your interests. You can take a look at what we offer on our Students' Union website. If you think we are missing something you can even set up your own when you get here!

When you arrive you will be allocated a personal tutor, that is your point of contact for anything course related. They can provide you with advice, support and guidance on any acaedmic or non-academic issues throughout your time with us.
