Guide to University
Here at Glasgow University we’re blessed to be in a fantastic location with great facilities nearby for Muslims!
Download our ‘Guide to University’ at Glasgow University, which also acts as a freshers booklet. It acts as a great introduction for your time here.
We’re blessed to have many mosques in Glasgow and near the university - Not to mention several prayer spaces on campus for all. We also hold Friday Prayers in the Gilbert Scott Building Forehall ( Visit our Facebook for information)
Click below to view our Mosque & Prayer space guide.
Feel free to download the prayer timetables for Glasgow which is dervied from Glasgow Central Mosque. Please note that the prayer times unfortunately vary between diffrerent Glasgow mosques. At university we do however follow Glasgow Central Mosque.
Generally, for first year undergraduate students, the university offers halls so the majority of these students choose this as their default option. Most students who are not 1st year students generally move into private student accommodation or rent a house/flat with friends.
The best contact is to join the GUMSA WhatsApp group which has both a sisters group and a brothers group - send us a message on Facebook/contact a gumsa member first so we can add you on to help find/advertise accommodation.
We also have a document that may be useful if you are looking for private accommodation which is given out by the University of Glasgow Accommodation Services. Please click the button below.
NOTE ABOUT OUR ACCOMMODATION SERVICE : We do not assign housemates. This is to ensure it is completely your decision who you share accommodation with. This service is just to help with the process of finding other like- minded people who are in the same position as you.
