Quiet Room

There is a quiet room for individual prayer and quiet reflection located near the Muslim prayer rooms in the Waterhouse Building in room W1.01.  It is available for people of all faiths and none to provide a quiet space to take a little time out or offer a prayer.




The Meeting House

The Meeting House can be found at 20 King Edward's Square by the entrance to the Clarendon Car Park.  It is used by the Chaplaincy, the counselling service and other groups for a variety of activities.  The Meeting House space has areas for worship, quiet meditation and prayer.  There is also a welcoming and comfortable kitchen and lounge area.

The Meeting House is available during weekdays between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm, excluding times when group bookings are taking place.  It is a place where students can visit a peaceful environment to meet socially or enjoy a time of stillness and quiet reflection.  Those who use the space have welcomed opportunities to take time out from the busy campus environment.
