Welcome to the Chaplaincy

Support and care, space and prayer in the heart of the Campus

The Chaplaincy is both a place and a team of people. We are here for people of all faiths or none - all students and staff, to offer counsel, advice or just a listening ear. Feel free to pop in any time. We are situated at the bottom of the steps to the right of the Library (the turquoise blue 2 on campus maps).  
Phone: 01225 386458 (Internal 6458)  
Duty Chaplain: 07966 341370  
During term time there is usually a chaplain available on week days between 10.00 am and at least 5.00 pm (6.15 pm on Tuesdays).
