7 High Street

Welcome to Elphinstone House – the Catholic Chaplaincy, Aberdeen.

The Catholic Chaplaincy exists to serve students and staff at the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University. We are situated at 7 High Street, Old Aberdeen; in the heart of the University of Aberdeen campus. The building is home to many groups including the Catholic Society, Society of St Vincent de Paul and The Alpha Course.


Elphinstone House is open for everyone – catholic and non catholic, christian and non christian. We believe that it is good to have a safe place at the campus.

This place is for you!

7 High Street is also a friary for the Greyfriars community: Fr Jakub and Fr Max live here and they are chaplains for the University.
