Universiti Mosque. Serenity. Calm. Peace.

In the midst of all the pursuit for knowledge and learning, hustle and bustle of academics... lies the University Mosque ~ a serene presence exuding the aura of calm and peace. The Mosque is located just in front of the Male Residential College and next to the Faculty of Science. The Mosque serves the University community as well as the neighbouring villages.
