Faith contacts

Although the University of York is a secular institution we aim to ensure all of our community can participate in the wide variety of faith groups in and around York. Listed below are a number of faith contacts. The University expects all of the faith groups listed to work in partnership with the University (via Student Support and the Equality & Diversity Office) to meet our duties under the Equality Act (2010).
