Get ready to enjoy the benefits of our broad and engaging campus ministry. Our teams work to build an inclusive student community, care for your pastoral needs and spiritual wellbeing, and encourage you to see the world in new and different ways.

Our campus ministry teams animate faith on all of our campuses, bringing the divine into the everyday. 

To do this, they apply our Catholic identity and mission to a range of programs and activities running throughout each semester.

Learn about why we offer campus ministry

Ministry on campus

Across our campuses, weekly Connect Groups bring students together to have wide-ranging conversations about faith, life and culture. And, each semester, events such as National Random Acts of Kindness Day energise the university community and bring to life our university mission.

If you need a moment of calm and reflection during the semester, you can join campus ministry at any of our reflections designed to give you a short break from the often frantic pace of uni life. Or you might want to sign up for a two-day Encounter event, which will allow you to explore and exchange insights on how your faith can have a positive effect on the community.

Our chapels

Each of our campuses also has a chapel. Here, you’ll be able to join weekday Mass, Adoration and the opportunity for reconciliation, along with Christian meditation, and celebrate significant moments each year with our student community.

During the day our chapels are open for students, staff and the local community to take some time out and enjoy quiet prayer.

Campus choirs

If you want to play an active role in the various events on our calendar, why not join the choir? It’s a great way to add a little tradition and beauty to the community – and your own university experience.

With a strong focus on liturgical and sacred music, our campus choirs rehearse weekly and perform at graduations and formal functions. On special occasions, all of our choirs come together to perform as a national unit.

We’re here for all faiths, or none

Whatever your religion, or even if you have none, our campus ministry team is here to welcome students and staff and offer guidance.

Our chaplains and pastoral associates are on hand at each of our campuses, ready to support you and offer meaningful ways to explore life’s big questions.

They run social events, provide hang-out spaces, offer reflection and prayer experiences, participate in social justice and community engagement, and keep their doors open for when you need to talk.
