Goldsmiths is proud of its multicultural community and recognises the importance that faith and spirituality play in the lives of many people.
Through our multi-faith chaplaincy service, we offer pastoral care – a confidential listening service and spiritual support service to anyone in the university community, irrespective of whether or not you consider yourself to be religious.
The multi-faith chaplaincy represents a range of different faiths. They can also provide a list of advisors who belong to a range of faith traditions. Faith advisors can provide you with information about local resources, meetings and prayer groups for your particular faith tradition.
A multi-faith prayer room is located in the Richard Hoggart Building room 2.106.
