The Senior Faith Adviser works in partnership with the faith communities of Kingston and can put you in touch with someone from your own faith tradition if requested.

A mixture of halal and non-halal food is served in the University. Produce will be clearly labelled, so it is easy to check.

There is no automatic right to time off for religious obligations, but the University will try to make reasonable adjustments wherever it can. Find out more about the University's policies.
