Chaplaincy

Located at the heart of the University campus, the chaplaincy is open to students of all faiths and none. It celebrates the wealth of nationalities, cultures and beliefs represented here at the University of Stirling, and is a place where you’ll always find an understanding ear and a friendly face.

Virtual Chaplaincy

Our Chaplaincy space on campus may be closed currently but we are able to offer a Virtual Chaplaincy via Microsoft Teams. Join the team for informal chat with others, just as you would have done in our Chaplaincy in person.

Remember you can still speak to us individually too. If you aren’t sure who you want to talk to just email your questions to our Chaplaincy Coordinator who will do their best to help and can arrange a one to one chat with you just as you could have had in the Chaplaincy space on campus.

Where to find us

The Chaplaincy is located in the Andrew Miller building, between the atrium and the Students' Union. It is currently closed for face to face engagements but if you have any questions we can help you with, please get in touch or email a specific Chaplain directly.

While teams are currently working remotely all enquiries sent to the above address will be automatically forward to the Student Services Hub team at ask@stir.ac.uk. They will be handled with the same confidentiality and data protection as before. To find more information on this please see our confidentiality and data sharing page.

Support and guidance

Our team of chaplains can offer you emotional, spiritual or practical support and guidance, regardless of whether you want to discuss everyday issues or life’s bigger moments. Chaplains provide an independent sounding board, an opportunity to ask questions of faith or a non-religious nature, and can also carry out hospital visits for you or someone you know.

The chaplaincy’s quiet room is a space you can stop by anytime for reflection and meditation, while our communal area is a lively and sociable place to study, meet friends old and new, or play on our guitars or piano. Whatever your reasons for stopping by, you’ll always get a warm welcome.
