Our chaplains come from a range of faiths and can provide spiritual guidance and leadership to all students.
Chaplains are professionals who have been appointed by their faith community and officially recognised by the University to provide spiritual support and pastoral care to students on campus. They are not direct employees of the University.
Based in the Multifaith Chaplaincy Centre on the Darlington Campus, the chaplains can help individuals work through spiritual concerns; provide advice, counselling or advocacy; and create opportunities for people of the same faith to connect across faculty and cultural barriers.
Anyone who is linked to the University can contact the chaplaincy service for free and confidential support. Some chaplains are regularly available in the Chaplaincy Centre while others may require an appointment.
The Multifaith Chaplaincy Centre manages a range of prayer facilities and activities, including an Islamic Prayer room in the Old Teachers College and regular Friday prayers.
There are many student-run spiritual and religious clubs available and active on campus.
