Royal Derby Hospital Centre
The University Chaplaincy team is part of the Student Welfare department and we are able to support students and staff at Derby of all faiths or none. Please feel free to get in touch for advice or a chat about anything you like - for example, personal issues, exploring faith or information on university or local faith groups.
Chaplaincy and faith advice for all

, our coordinating chaplain and we will respond very quickly.
