Hubs are open 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Faith Centre

Whether you’re a person of faith or not, you are welcome at the UEA Faith Centre. It’s a spiritual meeting place offering a range of worship facilities, enabling students and staff to explore their own beliefs. It also acts as a community centre, providing a welcome to all. You can speak to Chaplains and Faith Advisers representing most world faiths. Whatever your reasons for coming, this is a safe, respectful environment where everyone is offered a sympathetic ear, in total confidence.

We are open 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday during the semester, and on Sunday evenings for services.

There’s so much happening at UEA it’s really important that we communicate with our students and staff as often as possible. Here’s some of the ways we’ll keep in touch with you while you’re here:

  • Weekly student e-bulletin – straight to your inbox each Tuesday lunchtime. Contains news, events and important University information that you should be reading.

  • Don’t forget to join UEA’s official ‘Students of UEA’ Facebook group where you can find out about opportunities and events for students happening on campus and around Norwich – and share what you know with fellow students too!

  • MyUEA homepage – once you have registered online and received your UEA login details, you can visit the MyUEA portal where your personal dashboard will direct you to useful information from across the University. 

All students are automatically members of uea|su, the heart of student life on campus, and can make full use of the services that the student’s union has to offer. From an ethically focused coffee shop to the best student live music venues in the country, and from democratic representation to free, confidential and impartial advice.

Any question about student life at UEA, can be asked by getting in touch via our website uea.su, or by dropping us an email: union.info@uea.ac.uk
