University chaplain at your service

Do you need a break in the bustle of everyday life? Do you want to have a chat or share your sighs with someone? The university chaplains are at your service!

The university chaplains are available to everyone from the university community and are ready to listen to whatever you need to talk about; studies and work, relationships and loneliness, stress, anxiety or spiritual matters. The university chaplains offer a safe space for everyone, regardless of your religious conviction, gender or sexual orientation. They also have professional confidentiality. Additionally, the university chaplains can assist you with religious ceremonies such as baptisms, weddings, funerals and home blessings.

Feel free to get in touch to book a meeting. It's also possible to meet the university chaplains without a scheduled appointment during consultation hours.

HY Cafe

How are you doing? Really? Come share what is going on in your life or what you would like to see happen. You can decide how deeply or lightly you share with the others. The cafe lasts for an hour but you also decide to stop by for a bit, just like in a normal cafe! The safe space is lead by the University chaplains Late Mäntylä and Leena Huovinen.

HY Cafe are open for all students and they are organised on Zoom on every Thursday 14.00-15-00 (5.11.-17.12.2020). You are warmly welcome.
