Practicing your religion may be an important part of your life, and at the University of Glamorgan we aim to offer our students the support needed to practice their faith, regardless of religion or denomination.
The Chaplaincy, while rooted in the Christian tradition, is an open and inclusive service that provides a reference point for students of all faith and none. They also have access to advisers from different faiths – Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism – and are able to give pastoral support. The Chaplaincy also offer advice and information on faith communities in the area and other religious and spiritual matters.
The Meeting House
The Meeting House is the Chaplaincy’s base on the Treforest Campus, on the north side of the campus just uphill from the Ferndale Building and the Brook Street gate. At the Meeting House we offer the Welsh tradition of warmth, hospitality and welcome to the whole University community. It is a place where people of all nationalities, cultures, faiths and ways of life can simply meet one another.
Islamic prayer rooms
We have a prayer room on the Treforest campus located behind Ty Crawshay in which there male and female prayer rooms and appropriate washing facilities. These facilities are used for daily prayers and Friday sermons. You can find out more information from the Glamorgan Islamic Society
