  • Welcome to Roehampton! 

    "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:

    • Engage in worship, reflection and prayer
    • Explore faith
    • Develop a wider understanding of social issues
    • Develop as individuals and receive the support necessary for this
    • Receive and provide pastoral support as part of the University’s overall welfare provision
    The chaplaincy team includes representatives of the Jewish, Hindu
    and Muslim faiths, as well as Christian chaplains based in 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, we offer:

    Social Place

    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, Fairtrade Lunches, games, and film nights, plus lots more.

    Social Justice

    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.

    Pastoral Care

    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.

    Quiet Space

    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.

    Space to Be

    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.
