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.

Following specialist work to improve the ventilation, the Faith and Belief Centre on our Glasgow campus is now open from 9am until 6pm, Monday to Friday. Opening times will be reviewed in early Spring.

Users should bring their own equipment such as prayer mats. Affiliated groups and societies can book centre spaces on the Students' Association's online booking system, which includes Track and Protect protocols to minimise the risk of infection. Follow this link to book a space. Please see this Information Document which details the safety protocols that must be followed.

The centre can be accessed from the main door. Anyone who has not used the centre before must have their student/staff ID card activated at the Security Office.

Centre users are reminded that they should physically distance, wear a face covering and maintain hand hygiene. Please note that for ongoing safety reasons, the washing facilities, the toilet and the kitchen will remain out of use. Those booking a room will ensure room capacity is not exceeded and COVID mitigation guidelines are adhered to.

Room Capacities are as follows:

H036 - 26
H037 - 11
H033 -10

A queuing system should be adhered to for entry to the centre at busy times to avoid crowding the hall and information on each room's maximum occupancy will be displayed on the doors.

You can find information about local community places of worship on our webpages.

Please email faith@gcu.ac.uk if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
