UNIL - EPFL Chaplaincy is the presence of both Catholic and Protestant churches on campus.  The chaplains are available to the entire University community (students, personnel and professors alike).

The chaplains organise a wide variety of programmes and animations such as:  debates, outings, meditation, a Gospel choir as well as shared moments of conviviality.

They also collaborate with various religious groups on campus.

The chaplains' team is comprised of two Protestant ministers, a Priest and a qualified layperson.

About the Chaplaincy

  • Welcoming events for newcomers

  • Meditation (recharging of one's batteries)

  • Theological and ethical discussions

  • Interdenominational gatherings

  • Worship

  • Travel opportunities
  • Opportunities for spiritual development

  • One to one discussions


Finally, the Chaplaincy is also responsible for the welcoming and facilitating other faiths and beliefs on campus.
