Jummah Prayers during exams and vacation periods

During term time and outside of exam periods the Great Hall, in the College Building, is the only place on the University premises where Jummah Prayers take place.

During vacation periods or when exams are in progress the Prayer Rooms in the Tait Building are available for use for Jummah Prayers, as is the Tompion Community Centre on Percival Street.

Students and staff are not permitted to use teaching rooms, corridors stairwells or any other areas of the University for Jummah Prayers.

Great Hall

Jummah Prayers in the Great Hall will resume in September 2019.

Wudhu

Wudhu facilities for males and females are available in the Muslim Prayer Rooms in the City Faith Centre in the Tait Building.

When Jummah Prayers take place in the Great Hall, College Building, Wudhu facilities are available for males and females at the back of the Great Hall. These can be used on Friday’s only.

There are two separate Wudhu facilities for men and women on the third floor of College Building, near to room A305. Please use these for Wudhu, and not the other toilets around the campus.

Halal food

The main City food outlets in Northampton Square serves Halal food which is labelled ‘Halal’ or ‘Halal food’ so it can be clearly identified.
