Chaplains are an integral part of the welfare provision and pastoral support that the University offers both to staff and students. Chaplains at Durham are either based in Colleges where their care is for all members of College, or they work across the University where the Chaplain usually represents a particular denomination or faith community (though they are still available to everyone).

University is a formative place. It can be a time in life that raises questions about identity, belief and your own personal values. Chaplains are here to help you explore these kinds of questions. They are also available to encourage those of faith and those looking to learn about faith.

It is our hope that you enjoy to the fullest your time at Durham University. Through our different Chaplaincies, we believe we have a lot to offer you. We look forward to meeting you. Please never hesitate to be in touch with us if you think we can be of help chaplaincy@durham.ac.uk.
