The next Refresh Week happens in January 2018. Keep checking here for updates!

Our first ever Refresh Week is happening for the first from 30 January - 3 February 2017. This is your chance to get back into the swing of things after the Christmas break and try some different things out in the New Year!
Every event here is free entry, so if you're skint after Christmas then don't worry - we don't want your money. We just want you to come along, get involved, make friends and get refreshed! If you've got any questions about what's going on, you can email us at or get in contact with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.


Monday 30 January - SMSU Lounge - 3-5pm

Whether you’ve just arrived in the UK as an international student or you’re as British as they come, this event is a chance for us all to get together for a traditional British Tea Party!

Here’s a chance to try something different for the New Year and to make some new friends in the process. All are welcome, so if you want to join the Anime Society, History, LGBT+ or any of the 20+ other societies on offer then make sure you show up and meet the Society Committees!





Tuesday 31 January - Wednesday 1 February - SMSU Lounge, 4pm - 4pm (24 hour event)

Our Ladies’ Gaelic team will be attempting 24 consecutive hours of sport! All are welcome to join them for 24 minutes or hours...

The Home Comforts Cafe returns for 2017! Meet in the Chaplaincy for board games, tea, coffee, cake

and good conversation!

The perfect alternative to a boozy night out!



Thursday 2 February - SU Lounge, 10am - 5pm

Our fashionable friends at University Vintage Fairs will be bringing masses of awesome, cheap vintage clothing for you to browse and buy on Thursday. Make sure you get there early, as these clothes are one-offs and once they’re gone, they’re gone!




Thursday 2 February - Time and location TBC

SIMMSActive is St Mary’s recreational sports programme. It’s a great way to take part in social sport with friends in a non-competitive atmosphere where all are welcome. They’re planning a mystery event for Refresh Week, but we can’t disclose the details yet - it’ll be worth the wait, though!







Thursday 2 February, K217, 4pm - 6pm

Our Annual General Meeting is one of our most important meetings of the year - it’s your chance to make key decisions on what your Students’ Union will be working on in the near future. Your views make this union what it is, so come along and get your voice heard!





Friday 3 February (and every Friday after this) - Refectory, 12-2pm

Feedback Friday is our new initiative which gives you the chance to give us some feedback and tell our Officer Team what’s on your mind. Do you have any burning questions or suggestions that you’d like to give to us? This is your chance!
