The Chaplains

The Chaplains play an important role in the welfare provision and pastoral support of all students and staff in Ulster University. At the university’s request, Chaplains are appointed by their denominational churches and contracted to work as a Student Wellbeing service. On each campus, the Chaplains are committed to working together in teams.

They believe it is important, particularly in N.Ireland to show that people from different traditions can choose to work together to love and serve others and also enjoy it!. Chaplains are here to offer you personal, social, practical and spiritual support and are not here to recruit for any one belief, denomination, religion or organisation.

Chaplains can signpost and accompany you to other support services, link you with a faith community and provide information on local places of worship. University is a formative experience.

Chaplains journey with students and staff through each academic year and can help you navigate this journey as you ask questions, explore new things and embrace life’s many challenges. The Chaplains are there for you in times of joy as well in times of despair.
