The Aston University Chaplaincy Team are based the Martin Luther-King Multi-Faith Centre (MLK) which can be found in the centre of campus, near the Library entrance. The Centre caters for those of all faiths or of none, and the Chaplaincy team is experienced at listening and offering pastoral and spiritual guidance, prayer, support and friendship to all – regardless of background.

The Chaplaincy Team, and the MLK Centre team, are also available to any group concerned with issues of a religious, international, social or political dimension which wishes to explore, like Martin Luther King, the great themes of justice, peace, mutual understanding and the search for the meaning of life.

Multi-Faith Chaplaincy Agreement

The Martin Luther King Chaplaincy Team are chaplains drawn from different religions and denominations who work together in an atmosphere of inter-religious understanding and cooperation. Working alongside other support services in the University, their purpose is to assist all staff and students whether they profess a religious belief or not.

Chaplains strive to strengthen the bonds of understanding and fellowship that already exist between believers, those who hold no creed, and those who are seeking answers to the great questions of life. In a spirit of openness and dialogue, the Team aims to foster both religious and cultural identity and diversity whilst maintaining the highest regard for the lives of all those involved with Aston University.

Multi-Faith Prayer Space

This is a resource for all students and staff, regardless of religion. This facility will only be available if there are a minimum of two MLK
staff members in the centre. This is not an individual space – it can accommodate up to 6 people at any one time. No-one will be
excluded and everyone is reminded to respect everyone else’s space and silence. Chairs, cushions and mats will be available for your use. Please note that this is the only dedicated multi-faith prayer space in the MLK Centre and is not segregated into male and female. 

Islamic Prayer Spaces at Aston University

There are dedicated male and female Islamic prayer spaces in the Students' Union building (please ask at the reception desk for directions) and in the main University building. The separate male and female Islamic prayer rooms in the main building are on the 1st floor and are MB163 and MB183. Near the North wing, look for Lift H and stairs and then turn left through 2 sets of doors for Sister's room and right, through two doors, for the Brother's room.
