Mosque (Singleton Campus)

•    a separate prayer and washing facilities for men and women
•    a meeting room and Islamic library

People of all faiths and non-faith groups are always welcome to visit the Mosque at any time

Our campus Mosque is a great way to enable students to mix with and befriend people from all over the world. It is this diversity that makes it such a unique and interesting place to be. The atmosphere of the mosque is also a suitable area for study for both overseas and home students.
