Welcome to the Multi-faith Chaplaincy
The Chaplains work with colleagues in Student Support and Wellbeing to help students make the most of their time at University. In particular we support students with religious or cultural concerns as well as those who are feeling isolated or anxious. We have worked with students to arrange interfaith conversations, social justice activities and visits to places of worship.
In Semester 1 2020 we won't be offering drop in access to our building and all prayer facilities will be closed. The Chaplains are still here for you, if you need to speak with a person of a faith we don't have on the staff we have community links with members of many faiths. Email us and we'll be happy to arrange to talk with you. Certain activities will be running on a bookable basis, for up to date details have a look on CANVAS, Facebook or on this page
We also offer private and confidential conversations and support online, and over the phone. Chaplains attend events in churches, mosques, gurdwaras and other community venues. We announce these visits as and when they are due to occur

Campus Prayer and Quiet Rooms
We are sorry to inform you that all prayer spaces across the University of Wolverhampton will remain closed until January 2021. The aim is to help manage the risks to students/staff members health from Coronavirus (Covid-19).
The Chaplaincy is able to help you discover ways of praying from your accommodation or learn about local places. Many faith communities are gathering online.
In addition to the above the Mosque in Thornley Street WV1 1JP and St Peter's Collegiate Church in Wolverhampton are open daily for private prayer.
Why not take a moment to reflect and light a candle?
Take this opportunity to light a candle:
- in hope for the coming year
- in gratitude for all that we have
- for those in need
- in remembrance of a loved-one
- for yourself
