Religion and faith

UCL is committed to providing an inclusive learning and working environment where students and staff of all religions, and none, can thrive.

From its beginnings in 1826, one of UCL’s founding principles has been opposition to religious discrimination, welcoming staff and students of all faiths and none. Support and facilities are available for staff and students of all faiths.

Faith support 

The UCL Chaplaincy and Interfaith team aims to foster diversity and cohesion amongst staff and students of all religious backgrounds and none. All students can access pastoral support for any issues relating to their faith and/or religion. 

All major faiths are represented by a society at the UCL Students’ Union.

There are several contemplation/quiet rooms available for UCL members of staff and registered students on and near campus. The UCL Student Centre has a prayer room with ablutions facilities attached, and a second room for silent meditation or to practise mindfulness.
