Faith and religion
At Curtin we warmly welcome people of all faiths and religions into our diverse community.
Curtin University provides facilities to the Curtin community reserved for spiritual or religious purposes. There are three faith facilities currently available on the Perth Campus.
The Musalla (Building 510) is specifically reserved for Muslim prayers and religious festivals. Proper Wudu washing facilities are available, as well as separate male and female prayer areas. The space is open for the five daily prayers (Jummah occurs at 12:30pm every Friday).
Please note, this Musalla is for Curtin students and staff only. Unfortunately there is insufficient space to allow for community and family members to pray in this space.
Prayer and meditation room
The prayer and meditation room (Building 109) is available for anyone to use for prayer, meditation or other spiritual purposes. The room requires a current student or staff card for swipe access.
Catholic Mass occurs every Wednesday and Friday at 12pm, and prayer, bible study and meditation groups meet in this space. Please check the faith communities and visiting chaplains pages below for schedules.
Booked meetings have priority, so please always check the schedule on the door. For booking requests and other queries, please email multi faith services.
The Spiritual Garden, between Building 307 and 308, is a reflective space.
The garden symbolises the earth and the unity of all beings around a common focal point – water, the symbol of life. Plants have been chosen for their special significance to diverse religious and spiritual traditions.
Feel free to use this space for quiet reflection, meditation and prayer. It is also used for memorial services when required.
