Multi-faith Prayer Room (Goldsmith College)
The Multi-Faith Prayer Room is designed to be a welcoming and accessible space
for people of all faiths and traditions, but because of the range of religious and
cultural traditions involved this inevitably requires all users to accept some
infringement of their religious sensibilities.
Please read these guidelines, and take care to be aware of the religious
sensibilities of others, which may be very different to your own.
The Multi-faith Prayer Room is divided by a curtain to enable men and women
to pray separately, for Muslims and others where this is part of their tradition.
When the room has not been booked in advance by any group the ‘male users’
side may also be used by mixed gender groups of other traditions. Please
maintain the ‘female users’ side as a women only space.
The Prayer Room may be booked for communal prayers or worship by any
group. Small groups may book the ‘male users’ side. Larger groups may book
the whole space which may be used by drawing back the dividing curtain.
All requests for booking should be made at least seven days in advance.
All bookings will be listed and displayed outside the Multi-faith room. See also
