Faith and religion

If you’re a person of faith, we want you to know that your faith matters to us.

We hope that you will feel valued and respected here at the University of Hull, and we want to make sure that appropriate spiritual support and facilities are available to you should you need them.


A chapel is situated below the Arts Café in Middleton Hall and chaplains hold services and groups throughout the week. It is also used regularly by the Chapel Choir.

A Prayer Room facility is available for registered students and staff. It is open Monday-Friday 8am-8pm. 

A Muslim Prayer Room is available in Unit 4C on the Newland Science Park (adjacent to The Courtyard accommodation).

The Chaplaincy Team

The Chaplaincy Team is a voluntary group made up of local and regional faith leaders, all bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to broaden the pastoral support we are able to offer.

They provide a place of welcome and support to all students and staff of any faith or belief system, and offer physical and emotional space to chat, reflect and, if appropriate, pray.

You can report any instances like this by completing our online Welfare Concern Referral Form.

If you are victim to any physical abuse, violence or threats, we would encourage you to contact the police, and our Health & Wellbeing Team or one of the Chaplains can support you in this.
