Reflection Rooms & Jumuah
There are many reflection rooms across campus that can be used for prayers. See here for a full listing of available reflection rooms on campus!
* Please note: many rooms now require an MCard for access—if you don’t have one on you, find the front desk of the building or facilities staff member to obtain a physical key.
Every year, the MSA compiles a campus handbook to help orient new and transfer students, as well as provide current students with updated resources that might be helpful. Learn about reflection rooms, halal dining & restaurants, Muslim pre-professional orgs, and much more in our latest edition!
