Faith and religion

The University of York values the diversity brought by its individual members and aims to create a welcoming, tolerant and respectful environment for all students, staff and visitors.

We provide the information and links here to help students to make contact with members of their faith in the York area, or to find people willing to discuss matters of faith and belief.

All students are welcome to contact the full-time Anglican, Methodist and Roman Catholic chaplains. The chaplains have email lists you can join to receive information about their events and activities. The chaplains are independent of the University; appointed by their faith organisations to minister to the University community.
