University Chaplaincy

We are open to all students and all staff at the University regardless of beliefs or philosophy. Welcome to visit us in "Naturvetarhuset".

The university chaplaincy aim to create spaces and venues where you get the opportunity to meet other people and share experiences of life and faith. We are there for everyone, regardless of belief, sexual orientation and gender identity or ethnicity. Kyrkan på Campus is located in the Natural Science ­building, second floor from the entrance.

Welcome to contact or visit us at the chaplaincy!


At times you might want to talk to someone. As chaplains we have several years of experience speaking with and counselling others. You are welcome to discuss any topic, regardless of your philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
We offer counselling both for students and personnel. Of course we are bound by professional secrecy, and all conversations are free of charge. ­Welcome to call or e-mail us to book.


The Sunday service at 11 am in Ålidhemskyrkan is always interpreted to ­English. Just ask for headphones at the back of the church.

A couple of services are also led by the University Chaplains and have the ­Ålidhem International Church Choir singing. The dates are: 
23 February, 31 March and 1 May.

Retreat for students

We welcome you to spend a weekend together in silence and stillness by the lake of Tavelsjö, 1th-3rd of march.

Retreat means "to withdraw or to drawback". It’s a deliberate act of stepping outside of normal routines by withdrawing from the noise and pressure; the immediate and insistent claims of our social, domestic and workday responsibilities in order to be in a quiet place.

We welcome you to spend a weekend together in silence and stillness by the lake of Tavelsjö. Our retreat allows time for reflection, rest, prayer, writing or meditation. It will be held in English and it starts Friday late afternoon and ends Sunday around lunchtime.

Cost: 400 sek
Registration (last day 24th of february): formogr.am/xPJh6R0M0k


Tuesdays at 12.15–1 pm
No previous knowledge of meditation is necessary. Welcome to ­participate in the gift of silence and stillness.
