Multi-faith Chaplaincy

How can we help

The chaplaincy is here to support you in all sorts of ways, including:

  • a welcoming face and helping hand if you're having problems settling into university life, or at any time during the year
  • a team of chaplains and faith advisors who provide help and advice on all faith-related matters, as well as many other areas
  • support through a bereavement or other tragedy
  • lectures and conferences considering ethical and academic issues
  • a regular mailing to keep you up to date with chaplaincy events – email studentservices@plymouth.ac.uk if you'd like to receive it.
