What we do

About Us

As a UCC Department for Wellbeing and Health, the Chaplaincy is an inclusive service that offers a space for community, conversation, support, guidance, and enrichment for all students and staff at UCC. We support all UCC students and staff, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, disability, family status, sexual orientation, marital status, religious/non-religious background, or spirituality.

We are delighted to welcome all in the UCC family to our vibrant and warm community to meet new friends, unwind between classes, and just be yourself.
