Here for everyone. Here to listen

The University of Suffolk is a multi-faith community and welcomes students from a diverse range of backgrounds. In Ipswich we have a multi-faith chaplaincy welcoming both staff and students of all faiths and no faith.

A Faith Shaped Presence

The Chaplaincy Team consists of 9 chaplains - each of us represents a particular faith and are here for all students and staff. Find us in the Library building, next to the Students' Union.  We always have good coffee available!
