Chaplaincy

At Glasgow Caledonian University we welcome all students and staff of any faith or none. These pages contain information on the facilities, societies and events that are available to all students and staff. The University has a diverse and vibrant community and we aim to celebrate this through events and meetings on campus throughout the year. 

Our Faith & Belief Centre cannot reopen in Trimester A due to a lack of ventilation in the rooms. Instead every Friday from 9 am until 6pm students and staff can access rooms: 

  • W702 (capacity 28) 
  • W703 (capacity 32)  

And on Monday - Friday 9am to 11pm and Saturday - Sunday 10am to 6pm students and staff can access Seminar Room 3 on the 3rd floor of the library.  

Please note the third floor of the library is a silent study area.
