"Chaplaincy makes such a huge difference to us students"
Chaplaincy at Roehampton is a friendly and welcoming community which offers students and staff opportunities to:
The chaplaincy team includes representatives of the Jewish, Hindu and Muslim faiths, as well as Christian chaplains based in the church foundation colleges: Digby Stuart, Southlands and Whitelands.We’re here for everyone; students and staff, those of all faiths and none, regardless of college affiliation or faith perspective.
Each Chaplaincy Centre has a cosy lounge area available to all members of the university, where you can relax away from work, stress, and meet up with friends. You can also enjoy chaplaincy hospitality with a mug of Fairtrade tea or coffee. We organise social events, lunches, games, and film nights, plus lots more.
We encourage all members of the university to take an active role in our local and global community. We offer opportunities to get involved with Fairtrade, green initiatives and volunteering.
We're here to offer support to everyone in the University, both staff and students, whether you're "religious" or not. There might be a particular issue you want to talk about, or you might just feel in need of a general chat. We lend a confidential and listening ear and offer you time and space whenever you need it. Equally, if you are celebrating or just want to chat, the door is always open.
On both campuses there are a number of places set aside for quiet reflection. Whether you want to sit quietly, read, pray or light a candle, these spaces are for the use of both students and staff.
Students and staff from all colleges are welcome to any of these spaces. There is a Chaplaincy lounge in Erasmus House in Digby Stuart. There are Christian chapels in Digby Stuart, Southlands and Whitelands. See below for details of Muslim prayer rooms.
