The Religious Centre

The Religious Centre is the home for the multi-faith Chaplaincy program on campus. While many are working offsite, the Chaplains are still busy supporting students with online programs for the different faith groups, and working towards resuming face to face activities when it is safe to do so. Students are encouraged to reach out to the Chaplains and connect with a student community for a regular program of social and faith-based activities, and personal support. 

While all Chaplains are available to support all students, they do represent the faith groups of Anglican, Buddhist, Catholic, Coptic Orthodox, Islamic, Jewish, Greek Orthodox, Pentecostal, Presbyterian and Uniting Church, and work closely with student organisations at UNSW. The Religious Centre can provide a great opportunity for connecting with like-minded students and staff, engaging in activities, and forming lasting friendships across the university.
