Rollins Chapel is built from pink granite and sandstone trimmings. The chapel gargoyle is made from brown sandstone.

Rollins Chapel is used for Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and Baha’i services, as well as gatherings for other student religious populations on campus.

This glazed polychrome ceramic tile panel incorporates elements traditionally associated with the decoration of the Islamic architectural element called a “mihrab.”

Find meaning. Seeking answers to life’s big questions doesn’t end in the classroom. At Dartmouth, you can engage in discourse about meaning, explore spirituality, and practice your faith through the resources of the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life.

Communities of faith

Dartmouth has more than 25 religious groups, many of which worship in the non-denominational Rollins Chapel. Rollins has served as the College’s spiritual center since 1885. Other campus houses of worship include the Roth Center for Jewish Life, Aquinas House Catholic Student Center, and Edgerton House, which is affiliated with St. Thomas Episcopal Church. Additionally, some students attend religious services in Hanover and other Upper Valley communities.

You can seek guidance from the director of Religious and Spiritual Life and the College chaplains. Dartmouth also offers multi-faith programs for those who wish to learn about other religions, participate in Faith in Action spring break programs, and build community across religious lines.

Resources
