Welcome to the University Multi-Faith Chaplaincy

Welcome to the University of Aberdeen Multi-Faith Chaplaincy.

The University of Aberdeen warmly welcomes students and staff from many diverse nations, cultures, faiths and beliefs. This diversity enriches our whole community, making Aberdeen a great, globally-minded place to study and work.

The Multi-Faith Chaplaincy is, at its very heart, a place of pastoral care. Chaplains provide not only a welcome but support and advice to members of the community in times of stress, crisis, bereavement or illness. We are also here for those simply wanting to explore questions of a personal or confidential nature.

The Chaplaincy encourages students to grow in body, mind and spirit. We also build community through events and meals and we provide doughnuts at a free social evening every Wednesday from 7pm-9pm at Hillhead Halls of Residence where many first year and international students live.

The Chaplaincy is supported by a wonderful team of enthusiastic Honorary Chaplains and Faith Representatives. The Chaplaincy actively works to develop and organise inter-faith dialogues and community celebrations. There are many different faith and cultural societies in the University who use the Chaplaincy facilities.

ChaplaincyWe operate a Chaplaincy email list, sending out occasional updates on events occurring throughout the term.
