CANCELLED: Friday Prayers (Jumu'ah)

Colchester Campus

The University of Essex has provided a space to perform Friday prayers (Jumu’ah) for Muslim staff and students.

These events have been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

There are two rooms made available: 5.300 A and 5.300 B.

Room 5.300 A has a maximum capacity of 20 people for the brothers.

Room 5.300 B has a maximum capacity of 10 people for the sisters.

  • The capacity of the rooms must not be exceeded.
  • You must adhere to the COVID-19 government and university guidelines. 
  • You must not meet with friends and family unless they are a part of your household or support bubble.
  • All parties must follow the social distancing guidelines at all times, even with a group of six. This means people should be 2 metres apart or more than 1 metre apart as well as taking extra steps to stay safe (such as face coverings) to reduce the risk of transmission.
  • Only University of Essex staff students may access this space. 

Anyone violating the rules will be asked to leave
