Muslim life at Stirling
Muslim communities have been part of Scottish life since the middle of the 20th century. We welcome Muslim students to Stirling where you can enjoy our thriving campus community and local facilities.
We are also a short journey from Glasgow, home to Scotland's largest Muslim community which offers a variety of mosques, shops and restaurants.
We have a wide range of accommodation available to suit everyone – from private studios to shared flats. We can accommodate requests for female-only and no alcohol flats and also have family accommodation available.
See our Accommodation pages for more details.
Chaplaincy and Prayer
Our Chaplaincy team is available to offer sensitive, caring and confidential support for any situation. We have a dedicated Islamic faith representative and prayer rooms on campus. Friday prayers take place in the Ian King Room and other events are organised throughout the academic year. Please visit the Chaplaincy page for more details.
Many students also worship and are part of the community at the Central Scotland Islamic Centre, which is located in Stirling city centre on Burghmuir Rd.
Many campus catering options are Halal – look out for the signs on the menus in Venue in the Student Union. We also offer a very wide range of vegan and vegetarian food on campus.
If you’re looking for Halal options in the city centre there are plenty of Scottish-Asian restaurants.
There is a Halal store located at 95 Barnton St in the city centre for you to buy products to cook yourself at home.
