Faith and religion

The Chaplaincy is both a place and a team of people. We offer opportunities for students and staff to unwind and to explore faith and spirituality.

Where to meet us

The  is a dedicated space unlike anything else on campus. When you step through the door you immediately step away from the pressure of university life. Here you can ‘slow down’, soak in the peace of the 'Quiet Room' or enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the lounge area – all for free!

Chaplains are available throughout the week to offer a listening ear, personal help and advice, and spiritual support. You will always be met with a warm welcome and a respectful attitude. You don’t need to make an appointment – simply drop-by and enjoy the sanctuary offered.

Prayer spaces

We’re committed to supporting the faith and spiritual needs of everyone at 3PԼ. We know that for many students and staff practising their religious devotion throughout the day is fundamentally important to who they are. This contributes to the rich diversity of our community and we have appropriate prayer facilities on campus for this purpose.

Students, staff and visitors who require prayer facilities whilst on campus can wash and pray throughout the day in the Isambard Complex, or use the Meeting House, however there are no ablution facilities available here. Friday prayers take place in the Netball Hall.

Quiet room

The ‘quiet room’ in the Meeting House is a small, peaceful room which is available for prayer, meditation and reflection. Or just to be alone.

You can use this space to pray, meditate or just sit and gather your thoughts away from the clamour of daily life.

If you would like to book a specific time to use the quiet room, contact: meeting-house@brunel.ac.uk



It is important to feel a sense of belonging, especially when you’re far from home and sometimes living in a different country. New friends can be made and existing relationships deepened through the many and varied activities hosted at the Meeting House. Not all of these have a religious nature!

If you are seeking religiously-inspired activities and events, we offer a range of activities designed to support and nurture the needs of our faith community. These activities encourage sharing and socialising as well as prayer – and suggestions are always welcomed.
