The Chaplaincy Team is always available and Chaplains can be found in the Multifaith Chaplaincy Team Office in the Forum (Careers Zone). A Chaplain is available to talk with confidentially Monday - Friday on Streatham and St Luke’s campuses. Chaplains offer pastoral listening, confidential support and hospitality events throughout the year. The Chaplaincy also provides opportunities for pastoral support, worship, group study for Faith to be nurtured and deepened, and time to engage with searching questions and spirituality.

The Lazenby Chaplain is an Official of the University, and is appointed jointly by representatives of the University, the Diocese of Exeter and the St Luke’s College Foundation which manages the estate of the late Katherine Maud Lazenby of Tiverton. The St Luke's College Foundation (set up as a charity when St Luke's College was joined with the University in October 1978), employs the Lazenby Chaplain and contributes significant funds for the use of Chaplaincy at the University.
