SUHC are devoted to exploring the great British countryside around Hampshire and further afield. We host weekly Saturday day walks and trips, whole-weekend away trips and of course many other social events during term-time! Our activities include....
Day Walks: Every Saturday during term time we go for walks in the local area; Winchester, Isle of Wight, New Forest etc. Membership is NOT required for these, just turn up, the only cost is a train ticket to our walk location! Check out our Facebook page or sign up for the mailing list for the walk location each week.
Away Trips: 6 per year / 2 per term, weekend trips to National Parks, mountains and coastlines of Britain; Snowdonia, Lake District, Cornwall etc. On average, Â£45 each, but variable dependent on length of trip and location. Â£20 year membership required.
Socials: Regular and varied, outdoor and indoor! Everything from karaoke, pudding parties, club nights, barbecues and bowling. There's something for everyone! Most are free to attend.
Full membership costs Â£20 per year and allows attendance of Away Trips and discounts on club kit when available and paid social events.

Southampton University Catholic Society (CathSoc) is an open and friendly community of Catholic students from all over the world - we have over 36 nationalities represented among our ~150 members. Our main activity is hosting a Sunday Mass on campus every week during term time - we also organise social events (such as international food and dance evening, trips to the New Forest, trips to Sprinkles Ice Cream Shop, a Christmas Dinner and Summer Ball every year) and opportunities to profess and deepen our faith through prayer and worship groups. We also go retreats both in the UK and during the summer holiday we go to international trips. In the past we have been to Brazil, Italy and this coming we hope to go to Poland. All this for World Youth Day an international event lasting a week in any country of the world where we meet with the Pope, so worship pray and strengthen in our faith. We are not an evangelistic group but we reach out to the local community through our links with CAFOD and local parishes, mainly Immaculate Conception in Portswood and St Edmund's on The Avenue. The society is based at the Chaplaincy with support from our chaplain, Sr Catherine and a committee of students who run the society and the Masses. Anyone is welcome to join us for Mass on Sunday - just turn up at 6.30pm to the Nightingale Building (Building 67) in Highfield Campus. There is usually food afterwards :-) We are predominately Roman Catholics, but we have members from the Eastern Rite and the Orthodox Community regularly joining us. If you've made it this far, you should at least come and meet us now! We're very welcoming and very normal - see you on Sunday?
