Multi-Faith Chaplaincy facilities 

  • The multi-faith chaplaincy centre – A safe and inclusive social space located on the green behind the Ben Pimlott Building. Come through for free tea and coffee every day during the week. The centre will be open when the chaplains are on campus  
  • The multi-faith prayer room – You will find the multi-faith prayer room at RHB (Richard Hoggart Building) Rm 2.106. It has been adapted to cater for all faith traditions and has a male and female section when required, as well as separate wudu facilities. 
  • Confidential support – No need to book an appointment. Drop by the centre and just ask for one of our chaplains. If you would like to make a time to talk to one of our Chaplains, please email: chaplaincy@gold.ac.uk 

Feel free to talk to us about anything, whether you simply need space to reflect with someone or are in a deeper place of struggle, experiencing bereavement, a change in circumstances or spiritual searching.  

Our role fits into three main categories: 

  • Offering confidential pastoral care to everyone, regardless of religious belief or tradition 
  • Helping and encouraging everyone to find possibilities and space for reflection
  • Supporting the religious societies and other religious groups at Goldsmiths

Please visit for information about faith communities offering worship, prayer, meditation and community during the coronavirus outbreak.
