Campus Chaplains

Religious Services

Rensselaer Union provides a home to religious services for students by supporting a Chaplains' Office within the Rensselaer Student Union. This office is currently  home to three chaplains who provide spiritual support and guidance to students at Rensselaer. In addition, students are encouraged to explore churches and houses of worship nearby. This list of establishments is managed by the Chaplains' Office.

In addition, Rensselaer is home to the Chapel + Cultural Center (C+CC) which serves as a multipurpose performing arts and worship space serving educational, cultural, social, and spiritual needs of RPI, Troy, and the greater Capital Region communities. The C+CC is located at 2125 Burdett Avenue.  

For students seeking to be involved in religious student organizations, a sample of religious student organizations can be found under the Club tab on our website.
