Facilities at Witham House

Witham House Fec

The University of Lincoln Multi-Faith space, based in Witham House, is a facility used for worship, prayer, interfaith discussion and hospitality by the diverse student body.

Witham House has four principal objectives:

  • To provide the spaces necessary for different religious groups to pray, worship and explore their faith together on campus.
  • To be a centre for interfaith dialogue and common endeavour that seeks to address the religious tensions of today’s world.
  • To be welcome and hospitable to all.
  • To provide a reflective space on a hectic campus where both students and staff can take time out, away from noise and the stress of work either individually or in organised meditations, yoga, and so on.

Registered University of Lincoln SU Faith Societies committed to principles of interfaith understanding are welcome to use the space for their meetings. Please contact Subash Chellaiah for more information.
