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.

There are prayer facilities in the Student's Union Quiet Room which opens Monday - Saturday 8.30am - 9pm and Sunday 12pm - 9pm.

Currently, 13 faiths and denominations are represented at Queen's:

  • Baptist
  • Brethren
  • Catholic
  • Church Of Ireland (Anglican)
  • Congregational
  • Evangelical Presbyterian
  • Free Presbyterian
  • Humanist
  • Methodist
  • Non-Subscribing Presbyterian
  • Presbyterian
  • Quakers (Religious Society of Friends)
  • Reformed Presbyterian

Belfast also has a Hindu Temple, located in the city's Indian Community Centre, and a mosque, in the Islamic Centre in Wellington Park, a few minutes' walk from the University.

Queen's Chaplaincy Centres

There are four Chaplaincy Centres, all located adjacent to one another in Elmwood Avenue, opposite the Students' Union and close to the main University buildings. Each has a full-time Chaplain and other staff.

  • Several centres provide student accommodation
  • Students take a leading role in planning and preparing chaplaincy activities
  • Chaplains give a high priority to meeting students in halls and other accommodation
  • Provide counselling in a wide range of areas that relate to student life

Students are welcome to make contact with their religious representatives at any time.
