Enrich your spiritual and social life on campus

At Birmingham, we respect all faiths and provide opportunities for prayer in our multi-faith chaplaincy, St Francis Hall. We have Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist chaplains as well as many student-led faith groups and societies.

Our Multi-Faith Chaplaincy is for students of all faiths and none. Here you can meet for worship, relax in the Oasis Lounge, see a chaplain for spiritual and religious advice or pastoral counselling. We have chaplains from most major faith traditions, as well as many faith groups and societies run by students. You’ll find more about these events on the multi-faith chaplaincy events website.

The chaplaincy, which you’ll find next to the Guild of Students, has two large worship rooms, a small room for quiet prayer or meetings and a large lounge and kitchen facilities. The Selly Oak Chapel at our Selly Oak campus is also open during the day for prayer and reflection.

Support from our chaplains

If you need support or have a question, our team of full and part-time chaplains from a diverse range of faiths are available every weekday during term time. They’ll talk with you in a relaxed atmosphere and extend a warm welcome to all, regardless of religious belief or background.

Student faith societies and groups

The University’s vibrant spiritual and social life centres on the lively student societies based at the chaplaincy. There are groups representing most major faiths including Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
