WHO ARE WE?

We are the Catholic Student Network, a registered charity (charity number: 1193675) made up of a team of university students with a desire to share the faith and connect Catholic students up and down the country. 

On this site you will find resources, blogs and opportunities to inspire you in your faith journey; whether you are a student, a chaplain, or even just someone looking to become a disciple of Christ, there is something for you!

Want to get involved? Applications for next year's committee are now closed, but you can still help us out by taking just 10 minutes to fill out our Catholic Student Survey.

We aim to...

  • Connect and build communication between Catholic Students, Societies and Chaplaincy groups.
     

  • Encourage Catholic students to deepen their own faith at university.
     

  • Provide and share resources made by, and for, Catholic student groups across the UK, in order to support and encourage groups to provide great events for their students.
     

  • Showcase the events and talents of Catholic student communities across the UK

how we began

CSN started in 2017 when a group of students from the University of Birmingham's Catholic Society realised the need for nationwide links between Cathsocs and Chaplaincies. Since then, a website and social media accounts have been established, online campaigns have taken place each year, and three conferences have been held in Birmingham and London. Every year, Catholic students from across the country have joined forces to continue the work of CSN and this year, for the first time, we have an established Board of Trustees and Committee of current and past students! If you would like to be on next year's team, applications to join the team can be accessed by clicking the button at the top of this page. If you don't fancy joining the team, but still want to join in the fun, why not become a free member?
