Whoever you are and wherever you come from there is a welcome for you at the Meeting House.
Meeting House is a place where you can relax, forget the pressures of
University life for a little while, and just enjoy being with other
people, or if you prefer, sitting quietly by yourself. Read our
newsletter to learn more about the Chaplaincy at the Meeting House.
Where are we?The Meeting House
is on Treforest campus. We are on the north boundary of the campus, just uphill from the Ferndale Building and the Brook Street gate. Open from 9 am to 5 pm, Mondays to Fridays, during term-time, and from 11 am to 3pm during the holidays. It is also open in the evenings for special events and regular group bookings. A warm welcome and a hot kettle await you any time during opening hours.
What can you find here?
we offer the Welsh tradition of warmth, hospitality and welcome to the
whole University community. It is a place where people of all
nationalities, cultures, faiths and ways of life can relax, chat, argue
or pray together, learn respect for one another, and grow: simply a
place to meet.
The Meeting House is not a neutral place in which
people have to leave their beliefs and individuality at the door, but a
mutual place in which people can come as themselves to encounter others
as themselves. Meeting people of a totally different culture or set of
beliefs can be challenging and uncomfortable, but it can also be
exciting and fun. It is an important part of what education is about.
Meeting House is open from 9 am to 5 pm, Mondays to Fridays, during
term, and from 11 am to 3pm during the holidays. It is also open in the
evenings for special events and regular group bookings.
