In partnership with local Faith Communities, the JCU Multifaith Chaplaincy Centre supports and encourages JCU students and staff in their spiritual lives and encourages them in practicing their faith.
The Chaplaincy Centres are a free service provided by JCU. They provide a neutral space for religious expression, and are available to all students and staff via booking or drop-in.
The Cairns JCU Multifaith Chaplaincy has a Multifaith Prayer Room, located in Room A4.032.1. Swipe card access is required for entry and washing facilities are available in the A4 ground level amenities. The new facility does not require booking and is accessible 7am-9pm daily.
The Townsville JCU Multifaith Chaplaincy is located across the road from the Student Mall and is open 7am-9pm every day. The Chaplain is available 9am-4pm for appointments or drop-in every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during semesters.
