    Prayer Spaces in Harrington and/ The Library


      I'm on the committee of the Islamic Society and have been working closely with them for the 3rd year now. Over the time we have had several requests from medical related students especially to have a accessible place to pray in Harrington or the Library, as the other buildings may be too far to get to or they lose their space at the library when they need to quickly pop out for a few minutes. Especially around exam time, students will study all day and night and it's a very stressful period for them, therefore having a space that's close to them to practice their faith comfortably would be an amazing help.

      *Proposed plan of action*

      A simple room or space that can be separated into a brothers and sisters side to adhere with the religious requirements is the only thing that would be required and greatly appreciated. Preferably open for as long as possible as well.
