Multi Faith Centre

Chaplains are available for spiritual care, ceremonies or just for a chat. Chaplains support the spiritual wellbeing of all students and staff irrespective of beliefs. We encourage diversity and practice mutual respect and expect all people who use the facilities to respect difference.
The Multi Faith Centre on Hawthorn campus provides faith rooms suitable for prayer, meditation and reflection. It can be used for group or individual prayer, or simply serve as a place for quiet thought. This facility is here for people of all faiths or with no faith.


Yoga, mindfulness and faith-based Student club events run regularly in the space, see what’s coming up here .
