Multi-Faith Centre

A space for quiet reflection, contemplation and prayer for students and staff


The Multi-Faith Centre is located on the 2nd floor of the Students' Union Hub and provides a space for quiet reflection, contemplation and prayer for students and staff.

The Multi-Faith Centre consists of two rooms, a lobby and ablution areas. The rooms are assigned to particular faiths and faith groups at particular times. The timetable is decided in consultation with student groups and varies according to the time of year. During Open Prayer times, the rooms can be used by all students and staff of Queen Mary University of London for quiet reflection, contemplation and prayer.

The Multi-Faith Centre is open Monday-Friday 9am-9pm during termtime, and 9am-4pm during vacation periods. Outside of these times alternative prayer facilities can be found in the Library. 

Interfaith Forum

The Students' Union is committed to ongoing consultation with our members and with users of the Multi-Faith Centre in order to best meet the needs of students and staff of faith and belief. We aim to achieve this through meeting with faith societies and users of the Multi-Faith Centre throughout the year.

The Interfaith Forum provides students with the opportunity to raise any issues surrounding faith at the University, work on interfaith initiatives, provide feedback on any issues associated with the use of the rooms, make recommendations for their use and discuss the suitability of the timetable.
