Quiet rooms

A number of quiet rooms on both the Cathays and Heath Park campuses have been set up for individual prayer & reflection, meditation, contemplation or just quiet time. There is also a quiet room available every day during term-time on 3rd floor of the Students’ Union in The Lounge.

Religion Café

Held twice a semester, our Religion Café brings all students together, no matter which faith tradition you are from, to make new friends and learn about the beliefs of others.

Chaplaincy

Our Chaplaincy is made up of Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Muslim Chaplains. They work alongside other denominations and faith communities in Cardiff, welcoming students from all parts of the world regardless of their nationality or religion and are committed to encouraging discussion between students of different faiths and backgrounds.

The chaplaincy is a place of friendship, hospitality, prayer and support.  It offers opportunities for students to relax and explore faith and spirituality.  It provides advice, support and care, support student groups and organise a regular programme of worship, lectures and social events. Through events such as the Student Drop-in Café, the Easter Egg Hunt and the Pancake Day Party, the Chaplaincy creates a community feeling helping students settle in and meet new people.
