After three decades of determination, delays and patience the new prayer room (Musallah) for Muslim students is complete.

The project of creating a new prayer space began 30 years ago with the hunt for a suitable spot, then having the facility designed and finally built.

According to the Muslim Student Association’s (MSA) press release, “The final touches are being put on the Musallah and the MSA is in the process of planning an official opening in the next few weeks.”

The new Musallah is located on East Campus, next to the Planetarium. It will accommodate approximately 220 people and has facilities for both male and females.  Jumuah (Friday) prayers will also be performed here.

Currently Muslim students have daily prayers at the old Musallah on East Campus, while the Jumuah prayers are held at Hall 29.
