University Jewish Chaplaincy offers vital support to 8500+ Jewish students at over 100 universities in 13 regions across the UK.

Now, more than ever, our Chaplains who live on campus, provide vital in person support to students on the frontline, as they deal with all the challenges that come along with student life – such as loneliness, anxiety, ongoing incidents of antisemitism and intimidating anti-Israel activism. Ensuring that Jewish support and provision continues across the UK is vital to the wellbeing of our students.

Over the past year, UJC has had a huge impact on the lives of Jewish students at UK universities, with students having accessed Chaplaincy services 27,189 times. Chaplains have spent over 1,600 hours assisting students with different mental health and welfare concerns, organised over 600 events with over 13,700 student attendances and have driven over 30,000 miles across the UK to ensure that even those on outlying campuses receive support.

University Jewish Chaplaincy is proud to:

  • Protect and promote a safe and happy Jewish life for every Jewish student
  • Empower and inspire student-led activism and programming
  • Provide Jewish students – on whichever campus – access to a UJC chaplain
  • Deliver ongoing, non-judgemental welfare and pastoral care to all Jewish students
  • Offer a ‘home-away-from-home’ for all Jewish students

Your legacy will provide the continuation of this essential service to the community and enable us to continue supporting students and making a huge difference to their lives on campus and beyond.
