Pastoral care and spiritual support for students and staff
The Otago Chaplaincy team extends a warm welcome to all new (and returning) University and Polytechnic students. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way.
Our new Upper Room Chaplaincy lounge and offices can be found at the eastern end of the Mezzanine Floor in the University Union building.
Spiritual and religious guidance on campus
Otago Tertiary Chaplains are here to walk with people of faith as the "God persons" here on campus. We are not out to convert you, but to accompany you if you find yourself dealing with spiritual or religious questions. To be what the Irish call an anam chara - a soul friend.
We are here to provide pastoral care and a listening ear, to support people of faith (or no faith) in groups or individually, to pray with or for you, and to provide worship opportunities (informal or formal).
