Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. St Mary's University College is a university college situated in Strawberry Hill, Twickenham in South West London. Founded in 1850, it is generally acknowledged to be the oldest Roman Catholic college in the UK. The campus is often referred to as Strawberry Hill, and the university college is known colloquially as "Simmery's," "Simmies," "Simms" or "SMUC." Its alumni are known as "Simmarians" or "Simmies." Strawberry Hill House was originally a small cottage in two or 3 acres of land by the River Thames. Horace Walpole, a son of the politician Robert Walpole, rented the cottage in 1717 and subsequently bought it. He set about reconstructing the house and adding to the land, which now amounts to around 35 acres.
