Religious Life

Religious life at Boston University encourages students to get involved in a community that can provide strength and support throughout their time here at the university. Students may get involved in a group that reflects a lifelong commitment to a religious tradition, or they may seek out a group that practices a faith completely new to them. Marsh Chapel, BU Hillel, the BU Catholic Center, and Religious Life Student Groups  provide students with opportunities to connect with one another through weekly group meetings, worship opportunities, and special events.

Want to reach out to the groups? We’ll help get you connected! Register for religious life here. 

University Chaplains and campus ministry professionals are also available for individual pastoral care and spiritual guidance. Boston University also provides three other options for formal counseling:




The Religious Life Council provides advice to the Dean, as needed during monthly meetings. The University Policy on Religious Observance is available for download on this website, as are forms for applying to be a recognized student group or recognized campus minister.

The Dean of Marsh Chapel provides guidance, oversight, and counsel for all religious life at Boston University. Questions regarding religious life may be directed to the dean.
