Welcome to the University chaplaincy
We are available for everyone at Örebro University of any faith or ideology. We are willing to help you find a congregation or fellowship in Örebro of the faith you belong to. Our ordinary staff consists of a priest, a deacon and a pastor.
We offer a great variety of activities, meetings and services. Each semester lectures are held and study groups are organised. Visit and like our Facebook for updates, https://www.facebook.com/ukorebro/
You will find us at Forumhuset, on the second floor. Welcome!
You can always come to us and talk about anything; life issues, faith, relationships, personal problems, identity, grief, thoughts concerning studies etc. We are bound to secrecy, don't keep records and the counselling is free of charge. Welcome to make an appointment or just drop by and visit us.
Places of rest during the week
Communion and Midday Prayer are normally held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Calm Room Forum, located on the second floor in Forumhuset. Due to covid-19 we instead present a digital Midday Prayer on our Facebook page every Tuesday around Noon-time. Link to our Facebook page
During the second part of the Fall we also hope to celebrate a short Communion service in Calm Room Forum every Thursday.
Örebro University has prepared three Calm Rooms for staff and students. Calm Room Forum is located on the second floor in Forumhuset, just above the restaurant. Calm Room Prisma is placed on the second floor in Prismahuset and Calm Room Campus USÖ on the fourth floor at Campus USÖ.
These rooms are open when the university is open. They offer an opportunity to get away from studies and work for a moment, an environment of stillness and reflection. The calm rooms are open to all students and staff at the university regardless of beliefs or philosophy.
The University Church invites you to take part in a silent retreat once every semester. Retreat means withdrawing, getting away for a while to rest and gather new strength. The retreat is open to students and staff at Örebro University in need of a break and silence. It is designed and based on the Christian faith and its tradition of prayer times, Bible meditations and silence. There is a small fee.
Each semester we arrange a new retreat. Please visit our Facebook page.
Are you reflecting on basic life questions and matters of faith? Do you want to discuss the meaning of life, issues of identity, grief, as well as thoughts concerning studies and what the Christian faith is all about? Maybe you are interested in baptism or confirmation? Or perhaps you are interested in just meeting someone to chat with for a while?
You are welcome to knock on our door at any time in Forumhuset, next to Stilla Rummet. If you do not find us there, we are available by phone and mail (see below)
