On Campus


Chabad seeks to be a home away from home for Jews on campus and offers a wealth of social, educational and spiritual programmes at campuses across the UK and around the globe. At university, students are exposed to new ideas and experiences and Chabad seeks to ensure that students graduate as stronger and more empowered Jews than when they entered.

Since the 1960s, Chabad on Campus centres open their doors to every Jewish student regardless of background or observance level. Programming always reflects tolerant, non-judgmental and open discussions, which is the hallmark of Chabad's inclusiveness.

A unique quality of Chabad's campus centres is the leadership provided by a dynamic couple, who create an atmosphere where students can feel safe and seek guidance on a variety of social, education and spiritual issues.
