Curtin University acknowledge and respect the diversity of religious beliefs represented among students and staff. There are a number of faith services and facilities available at Curtin University and in the surrounding community.
Multi Faith services
Curtin offers a range of faith-based support services, including:
- Referrals to Curtin-based chaplains for specialised support in relation to a specific faith
- Connecting you with faith-based clubs and societies (run by students for students) – allowing you to network with fellow believers
- Coordinating bookings for the Prayer & Meditation Room – Building 109.
In addition, there is a range of religious equity arrangements with regard to exams, assessments, and graduations. These arrangements are facilitated by Curtin’s Student Wellbeing team, and include:
- Providing religious equity examinations and assessments for students whose examination or assessment schedule clashes with their religious convictions
- Providing religious equity graduation arrangements for students whose scheduled graduation ceremony clashes with their religious convictions
- Upholding, wherever feasible, conscientious objections of students and staff
Multi Faith facilities
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:
- Muslim Musalla
- Prayer and Meditation Room
- The Spiritual Garden
Muslim 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.
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.
For queries about this space, please email Multi Faith Services
Prayer and Meditation room
The Prayer Meditation room (Building 109) is available for anyone to use for prayer or other spiritual purposes. The room requires a current student or staff card for swipe access.
Booked meetings have priority, so please always check the schedule on the door.
This space is managed by Multi Faith Services. For booking requests and other queries, please email Multi Faith Services.
The Spiritual Garden, between Buildings 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.
