Many Muslim students will be fasting during the month of Ramadan, which falls this year between Sunday 5 May and Tuesday 4 June. We’re committed to supporting students who will be observing this holy month.
Prayer and washing rooms
Students can access a number of rooms across the university for prayer and washing. For students in Moulsecoomb, in addition to the Islamic prayer rooms and washing facilities in Watts that can be used during the daytime, there will also be temporary prayer facilities in Cockcroft M24 from Monday to Thursday, 8pm-10pm. (There are no washing facilities available in this room).
