At Roehampton, our friendly and welcoming chaplaincy team offers students and staff opportunities to engage in worship, reflection and prayer; explore faith, develop a wider understanding of social issues and to receive pastoral support.
Our 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 they have faith or do 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.
On both our campus sites, 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.
