Chaplains and Religious Representatives

Chaplains and other religious representatives are appointed by the University to represent and serve students and staff. The chaplaincy centres provide a focus for weekday or Sabbath worship, a range of social events and activities, groups for prayer or study, in addition to pastoral care and counselling.

Queen's seeks to be a place where all staff and students feel safe and welcome regardless of their identity or background, and to be a place where diverse perspectives are respected.
