Religious Life

“At Princeton, we learn from each other through what makes us different. We refract the content of our courses and daily interactions through the lens of our life experiences and those things we believe (or don’t); they are the foundation for the richest kind of intellectual, spiritual and personal growth.”

The Rev. Dr. Alison Boden

Religious Life at Princeton

A place for all — this sentiment is behind all that we do at Princeton to support the religious and secular communities on campus. Princeton is nonsectarian, and religious life here is characterized by its depth and diversity, reflecting our community of people from around the world and their interest in seeking meaning in their lives. 

Along with providing spiritual counseling, the Office of Religious Life will support you in the broadest kinds of exploration of religion, ethics, public policy and community well-being. The office, based in Murray-Dodge Hall, brings community members together for interfaith programming, and a variety of chaplaincies and student groups allow you to further your spiritual growth and learn about other traditions.
