The Muslim house is a campus focused community building and networking opportunity for Muslim students, young professionals and those dedicated to teaching, volunteerism and service. The Center for Muslim life will offer a unique opportunity in a residential setting, where young Muslims can exchange experiences and live in conscious community, while also connecting to the broader community of Muslim residents in the area.

The residential program will create strong bonds of fellowship among participants and local families which will inshaAllah be carried forward long after the program ends. By connecting the talent and energy of University students with the everyday lives of growing families in the area, the residential program contributes to a robust inter-generational community experience.


Community Space for Prayer, Gathering & Learning

Sirat is currently looking for off campus prayer and gathering space that will support the needs of our diverse community, while building bonds between us. This space is designed to increase the visibility of Muslim institutions while simultaneously anchoring Muslim life in the area. We intend to establish a space from which we can develop comprehensive services, increase Islamic literacy by connecting to the talent and  human resources at the University while joining in fellowship and remembrance of Allah through prayer and service. We feel this vital piece of infrastructure will enhance both campus and community life in general.
