About St Mary's University, Twickenham

The Mission of St Mary's University, Twickenham is to prepare its students for flourishing lives, successful careers and social commitment through excellent, research-enriched teaching in a strong community of mutual respect based on our Catholic ethos and identity.

Our reputation of academic merit and active research since 1850 provides students with a quality educational experience.

With our teaching excellence listed in the top 15 of UK universities and student satisfaction rated at 90%, it’s no wonder everyone thinks there’s something about St Mary’s. Situated in the leafy borough of Richmond upon Thames, our campus boasts all the perks of a great City location with the peace and tranquillity of a safe suburb.

This unique location, only 30 minutes away from Central London, enables students to take advantage of everything the capital has to offer. From shops, clubs and entertainment to history, arts and culture - you’ll find everything you need right on your doorstep! St Mary’s is the perfect place for developing a vibrant social life and lifelong friendships.

Our special sense of community is reflected in our Students’ Union. The SU hosts many weekly events as well as highly anticipated annual occasions such as The West London Varsity and the Summer Ball. Not just for entertainment, these events are also designed to bring students together to share in the experience that is SMUC. We have a large number of sports clubs and societies that provide the perfect platform to express yourself, make friends and socialise; these range from rugby and football to drama and the SMUC radio society.

As a member of the SU you have a voice to express your opinion and to make change, whether it is academic, social or sporting..
