CUHAS as a Catholic University promotes Catholic values in principal and espouses to instill moral and ethical values to the students training here. However, the university also respects the religious freedom of individuals within the CUHAS community, which is why there is a thoughtful support for religious associations on Campus.

Due to limited space within Campus, students have been allowed to utilize a few designated informal space to congregate for worship. However, there are several denomination churches and mosques within the Bugando vicinity, where students are encouraged to attend on designated days.
Chaplaincy: The university and hospital run a joint Chaplaincy which oversees the spiritual services for students, staff, patients and visitors. This office is open to people from all religious backgrounds. The office is located outside the Chapel.
