Religion and belief

Our students and staff enrich our community with their diverse cultures, religious, spiritual and philosophical beliefs.

We recognise that religion and belief can be of fundamental importance to the wellbeing of our students and staff and therefore, as a university, we are committed to supporting equity in relation to religion and belief for staff and students.

University Chaplaincy

The University Chaplaincy is a space where students and staff are welcome to pray, meditate, meet others or seek a quiet place. It is a 24-hour service, seven days a week and can offer help with spiritual, ethical and moral concerns. Chaplains from various world faiths are available to anyone regardless of their religious or spiritual beliefs, or their identity.

Campus facilities

The Chaplaincy provides a variety of spaces on campus to facilitate worship, prayer, reflection and hold group meetings. Facilities include a Chapel, Muslim Prayer Rooms, a Quiet Room and an ‘Oasis’ space to meet and chat.

Student Faith Groups

There are various student faith groups to get involved with. No matter what your faith background is, you are warmly welcomed to join any of these groups.

Religion and Belief Network

Work is currently underway to establish a Religion and Belief Network at the University. If you have any ideas or would like to express interest in this group, please contact the EDI team.

Religious Dress

At Loughborough, we welcome the wearing of religious and cultural dress in the workplace. In particular situations, health and safety considerations must take precedence in cases where the wearing of such dress would heighten a health and safety risk to yourself or others.
