No matter how big or small the problem, we're here to help

Faith and reflection

A Chaplain is a minister of religion who works in a university, but you don’t need to be religious to visit the Chaplain. AUB Faith and Reflection Centre is shared with Bournemouth University and is an inclusive centre, welcoming people of all faiths or none.

Chaplains are experienced listeners who can offer spiritual support, prayer, and friendship to students and staff, regardless of religious beliefs or background. As well as a range of groups, lectures and social events, the Chaplains can put you in touch with advisers from different religions and faiths.

The Faith and Reflection Centre is located upstairs in Talbot House, on Bournemouth University’s campus, next to AUB campus. A quiet room and Islamic Prayer Room are open to staff and students from 08.30 until 19.00 daily, and a chaplain is usually available from 09.00 to 17.00.

You can contact the Faith and Reflection service on the following:
