New opening hours for Mercantile Prayer Room

The Prayer Room in Mercantile Building will now be open 7 days a week, 11.30am to midnight.

This change follows student feedback about capacity issues with the Prayer Room in the Nuffield Centre at certain times of the day. Following discussions on how this could be improved, the best solution was to increase the availability of Mercantile Prayer Room on the first floor.

We hope that increasing the opening hours of the Mercantile Prayer Room will provide a better experience for everyone wishing to use the facility.

  1. I highly recommended that the university make at least one room in each building for prayers
    as we have at least 3 or 4 prayers during the study period daily basis so it is hard to go Mercantile building every time

    other universities has room on each building

    • There is an on-going discussion at the highest level in the UoP about developing future multi-faith facilities within the University Estates Master plan. The views of individual students on these matters are always helpful. If you would like to discuss this further please contact
