Praying on Campus
| Print |
The University of Michigan graciously provides reflection rooms in
a number of campus buildings. As Muslims, we frequently use these rooms
to pray. Mouse-over each room description to see a picture of the room.
These rooms are provided for the spiritual and ritual use of all faiths.
University of Michigan Reflection Rooms:
UGLi: The prayer room is on the ground floor. If you walk past the
cafe or the front desk and into the library you will see rooms all the
way in the back on the left hand side after the printing area. The first
room is the reflection room and it has a sign on it labeling it as so.
League: The reflection room is located on the third floor room 347
Angell Hall: On the south side of the building near the posting wall
there are elevators. On the right, go into the door that says stairwell
access and keep going straight and open the door to G620. [See
below for unofficial fishbowl area.]
Chemistry Building: Go down either of the staircases and make a
U-turn. Underneath the staircases are some vending machines and
the reflection room, which is across from the vending machines. Inside
the room, you can find a prayer carpet. Once inside, the prayer
direction is towards the door that you came in from.
North Campus - Pierpont: Going down the stairways by Beansters,
you will pass a couple of classrooms and will see a vending machine.
Go toward the vending machine, and you will see a room in the corner.
The Qiblah is in the direction the carpet is laid out on.
Unofficial Prayer Areas:
| Fishbowl: Muslims commonly pray in the fishbowl next to the|
cubicles. Go down the main stairs and make an immediate left and
then another left at the end of the cubicles near the emergency exit
stairs. Make sure not to block the cubicle door.
| Union: Opera lounge on the 1st floor|
