Pastoral support

Welcome from the Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy is here to support you during your time at university. We provide spiritual support and pastoral care for staff and students of all faiths and none.


Drop in to the Emmanuel Centre for a tea or coffee, relax and unwind in our common room, talk to a chaplain or use our quiet contemplation space.

The Claire Chapel

The Claire Chapel is available for staff and students, for quiet contemplation and prayer. It is located upstairs in the Emmanuel Centre.


The chaplaincy is here for you whatever you are concerned about. We offer a listening ear and a friendly hand through the difficult times in your life. We can help you keep your balance by offering you space to breathe and rest.


If you would like to speak to a Chaplain, contact the chaplaincy.
