Islamic Centre Opens

Victoria University recently opened a new Student Islamic Centre, where students can pray, study or drop in for a coffee between lectures.

Open to all Muslim students, staff members and members of the wider Muslim community, the centre, formerly located in the Kirk Building, has moved to 86 Fairlie Terrace.
The new centre has been collaboratively organised by Campus Services and Victoria International with the support of Acting President of the Muslim Students’ Association, Farid Rafie, who welcomes the support the centre will provide Muslim students, especially during Ramadan.

There are currently 250 students registered with the Muslim Students’ Association and the new centre includes separate prayer rooms for males and females, a kitchen, common area and internet access.
