Originally used for actors working for West Yorkshire playhouse, in 1990 the Playhouse moved to Quarry Hill and the University allowed the Islamic Society to convert the
unused space into a small prayer room. Over time the Green Room acquired a sisters section with excellent wudhu facilities, a kitchen and a library.
As membership to the Islamic Society has increased, so has the usage of the prayer room. With over 1,000 Muslim students on campus the inevitable wear and tear of the prayer area was beginning to show. It became clear that more space would be required to accommodate Jummah prayers and Iftar’s during Ramadhan.
The Islamic Society worked in conjunction with the society’s officer John Schless and Vice Chancellor Professor Michael Arthur to secure £500,000 funding to refurbish the prayer room. Alhamdulillah, the work was completed in 2005 and now the Islamic Society has one of the best campus prayer rooms in the country!
