University of Nairobi endeavours to provide an enabling environment in which the student will hopefully grow into a whole human person. The University therefore recognizes the need for services of a spiritual nature , over and above the other services we offer.

The Chaplaincy is staffed by religious leaders (Protestant, Catholic and Muslim) and offers general support and guidance while also drawing attention to the spiritual value within the various faiths. The services of the Chaplaincy are open to the entire University Community.

Some of these services and activities include guidance, conducting religious ceremonies, for instance, weddings, baptisms, burials,conducting regular worship services, hosting seminars and workshops, and coordinating religious activities at the University.

The University Chaplaincy is located in Gandhi Wing.
