Need to talk? The Chaplain is available to speak with students in a confidential and safe environment and treats students with respect and dignity in all situations within and beyond the Institute. The Chaplain's Office is room D26 , students are free to call to the Chaplain's office at any time and the Chaplain is available to students of all denominations and none.

Illness and Bereavement Here at the Institute, bereavement and loss are seen as significant events in a student’s life and you will find staff most supportive of you at this time. Also, should you be aware of a student illness, accident or bereavement, we would be grateful if you would let us know.

SAFE fund Some students find themselves in financial difficulty at times during the academic year. The SAFE fund committee administers a small fund which takes the form of interest free loans for students in financial crisis. The fund is geared to make a quick and supportive response and is primarily designed for unanticipated emergencies only. All enquiries to the Chaplain's office.

Among the books available for reading are reflections on bereavement and loss, world religions and faith development. The Quiet Room is located in C 41.
