Students Staff


Our University is proud of its vibrant and diverse multicultural community and recognises the importance that faith, belief and spirituality play in the lives of many people.

Through our Multi-Faith Chaplaincy service, we offer pastoral care, a confidential listening ear and spiritual support to anyone in our University community, no matter whether you consider yourself religious or not.

As well as our regular Chaplaincy-led events, there are a number of Students’ Union faith societies you can join, giving you many opportunities to practise your faith, meet others and socialise.

The Multi-Faith Chaplaincy represents a range of different faiths. If your faith isn't represented the Chaplaincy team supports all University members and can provide guidance about local places of worship and try to put you in touch with other faith leaders, where available within the local community.
