Praying on Campus

Here at The Ohio State University, there are plenty of campus prayer spaces.  We are closely working with university representatives to better provide for the Muslim student and faculty at OSU. However, these spaces are subject to change as the university continues to amend their COVID regulations.  

MSA has done its best during this difficult time to understand the available spaces on campus. Below there is a list of meditation areas as well as more information on Jummah on campus.
