societies and activities


A Museum without a Home

North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins praised students for raising awareness of the refugee crisis when he visited a new exhibition hosted by the Oxfam Society.

The Museum without a Home exhibition is a touring exhibition by Oxfam and Amnesty International which showcases real items donated by Greek and British people to refugees and migrants. Objects on display include a kettle, colouring books, a cooking pot and a backpack: items that may appear mundane but are meaningful for the refugees who were given them by welcoming people in a strange new country.

St Andrews is the first university to host the exhibition, it ran until the end of September in Society Room D in the Union. 



As we say again and again, the Union functions because of volunteers and without them we wouldn’t be the unique organisation we are.  This is especially true during Freshers’ Week.  From Box Office to the Freshers’ Fayre our dedicated volunteers work so hard. 


updates in and around the building

We’ve updated our menu in The Main Bar.  Due to popular demand we’ve added a new veggie pasta dish and curries to the menu AND we’ve extended our opening hours on a Sunday until even later to tie in with the Sunday night Pub Quiz.


We’ve brightened up some of our white walls with some great shots of our societies and subcommittees.
