As part of Swansea University’s commitment to promoting equality and diversity, we aim to operate in an environment where the religious and non religious beliefs of all individuals are respected to enable all individuals to achieve their full potential.
Student Services have a faith website that can be viewed here.
The Chaplaincy at Swansea University is provided by a team of 6 chaplains from local churches who work together to support and develop the spiritual life of the University community, regardless of race, status or faith. The Reverend Nigel John is the full-time University Chaplain, supported by 5 colleagues who work at the University on a part-time basis. The Chaplains are available to you throughout your time in Swansea, and are pleased to welcome you whether you belong to any faith or none, to offer counsel, support and friendship. The Chaplaincy can be found on the ground floor of Fulton House and during term time is open every day.
The Mosque at Swansea University can be found on the east side of the Library and Information Centre. The University Mosque is an integral part of the lives of most Muslim students on campus. It has all the facilities you would expect to find in any modern well-equipped mosque. There are separate prayer and washing facilities for men and women, a meeting room and a dedicated Islamic library. The mosque is managed and run by the University’s Students’ Union Islamic Society (ISOC).
