About

The Islamic Society at the University of Essex is a primarily student-run society whose vision is to inspire and enable Muslim students to live by Islam.
An international platform for Muslim students.

It is estimated now that the Islamic Society accommodates about 500 members including members of staff, students and local Muslim community who belong to a diversity of ethnic backgrounds.
Despite the fact that membership of the society is principally granted to registered students of Essex, the society welcomes members of the Colchester community, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to participate in the different activities organised by its members.
The society also maintains close links with the Muslim community in the County of Essex whose members take part in activities like the Friday Prayers, the Eid Prayers, the Ramadan Iftar, the Islamic Awareness Week and in other similar activities that aim at the promotion of Islam and Islamic values at Essex.
