About the Chaplaincy

The Multifaith Chaplaincy Team constitutes a team of Faith leaders  from a wide variety of faith backgrounds and world views, including Bahá'í, Buddhism, ChristianityJudaism and Islam. We also have a part-time Multifaith Co-ordinator and a part-time Administrator.

We work together to serve the whole University community, and are here to listen to students and staff, of all Faiths and none.  Our Chaplains provide a safe space to talk, and offer you discreet and confidential listening. In addition, and only if required, we can also provide details on Faith activities and worship both at the University and in the City Centre. We agree to abide by the University of Exeter Multifaith Chaplaincy Statement. A copy of which can be obtained by contacting chaplaincy@exeter.ac.uk.

 

Where is the Chaplaincy based?

We are based in the Chaplaincy Office, The Forum and the Chaplaincy Hub, Old Library.  We can also offer you a quiet space to rest and relax in our Quiet Room on the first floor of the Old Library. The kitchen can be used to make tea and coffee.

The Mary Harris Chapel on the Streatham Campus and the St. Luke's Chapel on the St. Luke's Campus also provide quiet spaces to simply be. Both are beautiful, peaceful buildings and you are welcome to come and sit for as long as you like, and to light a candle. They are open to everyone.

Muslim students may like to make use of the prayer rooms found on both campus, in the Old Library on Streatham Campus, and in the Holnicote Building on St. Luke's Campus.

 

What do the Chaplains do?

We believe that all students and staff at Exeter University deserve time and care. We are here to support you, to be available for you to share any concerns, to support your wellbeing, and help you to enjoy your time in Exeter.
