Take a look at the Great Hall Jummah prayer timetable.

Please note that during term time and outside of the exam periods the Great Hall is the only place on University premises where Jummah Prayers take place.

During vacation periods and when exams are in progress the Muslim Prayer rooms in College Building are available for use for Jummah Prayers, as is Tompion Community Hall in Percival Street.

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


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 other toilets around the campus.

Jummah will be conducted at Tompion Community Hall, 40 Percival Street, off St. John's Road. This is less than 5 minutes' walk from Northampton Square. From 7th October Jummah is also held in the Great Hall, College Building and Wudhu facilities are available for men and women at the back of the Hall for use on Friday’s only.

The prayer timetable includes times and space locations for different prayers. This also gives information about the arrangements for students at Eid and other occasions. There will also be programmes and events taking place throughout the academic year, which will be published online.
