The Office of Religious Life promotes Princeton University’s care and support for the many religious communities that flourish on its campus. We seek to support all religious traditions in the practice and expression of their faith, and we strongly encourage interfaith dialogue and cooperation. We also seek, through our own programs and in collaboration with others, to provide opportunities for community service, cross-cultural understanding, and constructive social action.
Office of Religious Life at Murray Dodge Hall
Murray-Dodge Hall houses the Religious Life offices, the Hindu and Muslim Life offices, the Murray-Dodge Cafe, the Muslim Prayer Room, the Interfaith Prayer Room, and a number of campus ministries. It also provides space for a wide variety of worship services, student meetings, study, and informal gatherings. The Center for Jewish Life (CJL) offers programs and services for the Jewish community on campus. Ecumenical Christian services are held in the University Chapel on Sunday mornings, with sermons preached by the Deans of Religious Life or special guests, with music provided by the Chapel Choir. Opening Exercises and the Baccalaureate Service also take place in the University Chapel. The Chapel is open daily for prayer and meditation from 7am - 11pm during the Fall and Spring Term (7am - 4:30pm during break, 7am - 3pm in the Summer). We encourage you to take part in our many worship opportunities, programs, and student religious organizations.
