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!

Tom and Linda are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and occasionally on Thursdays and Fridays. Other chaplains are occasionally available too. Pop in any time!
