As part of our commitment to the wellbeing of our students and staff, the University’s Multi-faith centre has recently been transformed into a welcoming, safe space for everyone on campus to enjoy regardless of beliefs. The refurbishment was the culmination of collaborative work between students, Chaplaincy, student services and Estates; creating a place for prayer, mediation and reflection. The quiet room in particular, has been thoughtfully designed to give students and staff a restful and restorative space when they need to take a break, and was the result of a survey which received over 340 responses, overwhelmingly in favour of the creation of such a room.

Reverend Helena Roulston said “I am so grateful for the time and effort that colleagues dedicated to this project to enable the space to support the variety of use and my vision for chaplaincy here in Hallam.”

Chief Estates and Facilities Officer, Mark Swales added ‘this project will make a difference and is a great example of collaborative working and a high standard of delivery from the estates team!’
