Faith and Religion

The need to be respectful of the multi-religious nature of the BISC community is recognised as fundamental to the continued harmony of the community and the well-being of our students. At the BISC we do what we can to link students with local religious and faith based organisations, services and places of worship as well as inviting local religious leaders to the Castle to meet with the students in both formal and informal settings. For example, Reverand Richard Steven of All Saints Church is a regular visitor to the Castle; meeting students for lunch and running a weekly student ALPHA course.

Although our own facilities are limited, Student Services and the BISC will always endeavour to meet the spiritual needs of students. If you have a particular requirement or question, please contact student services: studentservices@bisc.queensu.ac.uk

Important Information About Rosh Hashana

Students wishing to observe the High Holiday of Rosh Hashana will not be penalised for missing any of the Orientation programme.
