Religion and belief 

We are privileged to have a diverse mix of students and staff at the University that bring a rich variety of religions and beliefs. We aim to support you whether you identify yourself as being part of a particular religion or belief, or whether you identify as having no religion. 

The University provides a range of rooms on every campus for regular prayer and religious observance.  This includes a Christian chapel, Muslim prayer rooms, and several multi faith prayer rooms available to all faiths.

The Chaplaincy and Faith Support team has strong connections into the local community and its communities of faith. They can advise you on local places of worship and how your faith interacts with academic life and your chosen discipline. Events are held throughout the year to mark and celebrate a variety of religious dates.  

Definition of religion and belief 

Under the Equality Act 2010, it is unlawful to discriminate against someone because of their religion or beliefs. Protection from discrimination also applies to those who have no religion, for example, people who identify as atheists.
