'Godparents/Godchildren' programme
We have launched the ‘Godparents/Godchildren’ programme for the next academic year! The Chaplaincy's version of College Parents. Contact a Chaplain for more information!
Current students, you can sign up as a ‘godparent’ - even if you have been one before. Don’t worry if you don’t have a ‘co-parent’; we'll sort it out. Complete the form here.
If you are coming up to Oxford next academic year, sign up as a ‘godchild’ here.
If you are leaving (or have left!) Oxford, we wish you all the best! Do stay in touch. Don't forget to send us your non-University email address!
And let us know if you are changing college / continuing your studies after graduating, so that we can update our databases and mailing lists.

The Oxford University Catholic Chaplaincy building is open for all students to use 24/7. Whether you want to stop by to use the Chapel, fancy a cup of tea with friends, or would like a relaxed and social place to study, we are open for you.

Our building is kept secure with door codes for both the ground and first floor. These are released to students at the discretion of the Chaplains at the start of each term, and allow full access to the non-residential parts of the building.

The ground floor entrance space is known as the Narthex. The sofas there are the perfect spot to relax or eat your lunch. The Chapel is also on the ground floor, and is always open.

On the first floor, you will find the Chaplaincy library. This space is used frequently by students during term who seek a comfortable space to get their readings done and essays written. The library is stocked with a wide range of books, both fiction and non-fiction; just outside, a kettle, fridge space, and microwave are available for you to make tea and have a break.

The Strange Room is the main social space of the Catholic Chaplaincy and has plenty of room for you to meet with friends and relax in between work and tutorials.
