In 1968 a student called Aslam Ibrahim initiated the Glasgow University Muslim Students Association with aims to unify and activate the Muslims on campus. His aims were simple – to create a voice for Muslim students to be able to fully practise their religion at Glasgow University.


Since GUMSA’s inception, we have striven to fulfil these aims as well as create new ones in which we foster links with the university and other student bodies to work together for the community in Glasgow -  and insha'Allah we hope to uphold these values.

Our Team

Have you ever wanted to be more in GUMSA? Whether you’re in first year or proposing your PhD thesis, there’s no age requirement to become a committee member. Now’s your chance!

There are many volunteering positions in GUMSA as we have a very busy calendar of fun and exciting events. Volunteering positions include designers, charity fundraisers, writers, and event organisers. Contact us to get involved via social media, email or talk to the executive committee. 

Our executive committee is a team full of senior positions that ensure accountability and leadership to how GUMSA is managed every academic year. Their priority is to ensure the spiritual and social needs of Muslim students on campus are met. These members change every year through a vote at our annual general meeting by GUMSA members just before summer exams.


Anyone can be in the executive committee – what it requires is a manifesto containing any relevant experience and ideas. 

Don’t blend in the background during university, get involved and develop your character. There’s bound to be a role perfect for you!

GUMSA is one of 200+ Student Representative Council (SRC) affiliated societies at the University of Glasgow. By being partnered and registered with the SRC we are able to participate at Freshers’ Fair, organise events within campus buildings (including Friday prayer) and receive grants, Alhamdulillah. We thank them for supporting us.

We also work with the Muslim associations of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian and West of Scotland Universities for talks and collaborative events. In addition, we work with the Jewish, Christian societies and other societies at University for guest speakers and for our Interfaith Dinners. Again, we thank them for supporting us.

Allah Kareem.
