Supporting faith and spirituality

Multi-Faith Space, RCA Kensington Campus

The RCA is committed to providing support for people practising any religion, belief, or faith, including those who do not. Stevens G30 in the Kensington Campus is reserved for all staff, students, and registered visitors to offer prayers or quiet contemplation, including meditation, for followers of all religious faiths and beliefs or none. A shower room is available in the basement of the Stevens building for ablutions.

Students may book the multi-faith room or invite guest speakers using the booking forms available on the Intranet.

Prayer Space, RCA White City Campus

A prayer space is available to staff and students in the Reading and Listening Room on the Second Floor, at the south end of the building (GH217).

The Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Centre at Imperial College

RCA staff and students have full access to the Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Centre team at Imperial College. They provide a range of support for all religious and philosophical worldviews.

The Chaplaincy offers faith-based welfare and pastoral support to staff and students. The Chaplain is also available to help with projects related to faith, bereavement, ritual, spirituality, places of worship, and access to nearby Muslim, Jewish, and multi-faith prayer rooms.
