Student Wellbeing

 

A lot of Colleges will have a Chaplain or Dean who are responsible for the life of the College Chapel (where there is one) and also tend to have a pastoral role among members of the College community. Whilst Chaplains or Deans may be affiliated with a particular Christian denomination owing to the religious traditions of many of the College Chapels, they are available to all members of College, students and staff, of all faiths or none.

The Chaplain or Dean will be happy to talk to you about any issues or concerns, including matters of faith and spiritual life, studying, work, family, friends, health, bereavement, or if you just want a chat. They can also usually put you in touch with local leaders or contacts from your own faith tradition if needed.

The Chaplain or Dean will offer a listening ear and a source of support for all and will usually be bound by specific confidentiality obligations – ask them what these are if you are in any doubt.
