Information for Students

A warm welcome to our new and returning students!

What is CathSoc?

The Catholic Society (or CathSoc) is a society set up for Catholic students. It is part of Aberystwyth University Students Union.

We strive to act primarily as a home away from home for all Catholic students. We provide an opportunity for Catholic students to socialise, grow in faith and become involved in the parish. We equally welcome those who are not Catholic, but are interested in strengthening their relationship with God.
