Prayer and Contemplation Facilities

The University has an inclusive multi-belief Chaplaincy providing services to staff, students and visitors, such as prayer and contemplation rooms and garden; faith specific kitchen and washing facilities; as well as being able to meet the Chaplain.

People are welcome to attend each other’s worship, e.g. Muslim Prayers, Jewish Shabbat, Christian Services, Pagan festivals, and also attend each other’s societies.
