The Prayer’s Chamber, previously located in the Ewha Campus Complex (ECC) Room B328, is now relocated to Room B261. The change has been made in order to provide a more quiet and solemn atmosphere for students to meditate and pray.
The Office of University Relations & Development (OURD) decided to relocate the Prayer Chamber which was first constructed in March 2009. The chamber that had previously been located in adjacent to the ECC Gallery did not provide a suitable place for silent prayers due to the noise created by visitors attending exhibitions.
After the construction for relocation which started in September and completed in October, the chamber is now located on the second floor of the ECC. The new location that combines Room B261 and B274 stands by itself, separated from potential sources of noise.
“We decided to relocate it to provide a more suitable place for prayers,” said Kang Hye-song, an official of OURD.
Students express anticipation toward the change.
“I expect the change to provide a favorable atmosphere for students to think and pray.” Yang Ji-young (Social Science Education, 3) said.
The officials hope that students  would use the Prayer’s Chamber more frequently now that it provides a more suitable atmosphere for prayers.
“We hope the newly located chambers will provide a better atmosphere for students to pray in.” Kang said.
Meanwhile, there are currently six Prayer’s Chambers on campus, located in buildings such as the Pfeiffer House, Student Union Building, the College of Education, Hanwoori Hall and Ewha Archives.
