    To those who’ll be coming to Manchester, I’d just like to welcome you all and hope you have an awesome time!

    I’d say to get involved with the ISoc on your first day!! (btw there’s no joining fee or anything like!)

    I, myself, have been studying here for a few years now and I feel the need to debunk some myths on this thread…

    I got involved on my first day of Uni and I haven’t looked back since.. Alhamdulillah I can honestly say that Manchester ISoc has been awesome! It’s one of the most active and diverse societies on campus, you get the wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know a whole host of different people from different backgrounds and everybody always loves the sense of brotherhood, sisterhood and togetherness that they feel! It also helps to get to know people who do the same course as you who are in the year's above *wink wink*

    Many people regard UoM ISoc as being one of the most engaging ISocs to be found anywhere in the country – they organise a lot events to cater for everybody and anybody. To those who will be new to UoM, ISoc always has a stall in front of the SU building during the course of freshers’ week where you’ll be able to meet people, get your fresher’s pack and find out about the events ISoc holds at the start of the year…they always have a lot of social events at the beginning of the year including pizza nights, fifa tournaments and actual football tournaments for brothers, picnics for sisters and a lot more besides! They also hold academic sessions for different courses and there’s always an islamic talk that they organise at the start of the year as well and they also have weekly educational classes on Islamic topics (e.g. stories of the Prophets) running throughout the year…

    There’s also an ISoc FC football team that competes against other society/course football teams in the Uni’s football league and there are plans to get more sporting activities going as well like basketball for brothers, netball for sisters…

    The ISoc also hosts a ’welcome dinner’ at the start of the year, complete with a 3-course-meal and great entertainment…take it from me, its unmissable! Tickets only cost £5 – great value for money!

    As well as that, the ISoc organises a lot of different talks over the course of the year…previous speakers have included the likes of Ust. Abdelrahman Murphy from America and others speaking on a wide range of different topics. The society also takes part in charity week, where it raises as much money as it can for charity through sponsored events like hiking up mountains and other activities.

    On top of all this, the ISoc has two MASSIVE prayer halls on campus…pretty sure that they might even be the biggest in any UK university! They’re open to the public and all five prayers happen in them…I think there are over 3500 Muslim students studying at UoM and many more Muslims who live close by who come and pray so the prayer halls are always buzzing with activity – they’re a great place to meet people!

    As for some of the rumours about the ISoc on this thread, I can honestly say that they’re not true! XD

    The ISoc is a friendly, informal, neutral society that is there for everybody – the isoc doesn’t have its “own interpretation of Islam”…it caters for every type of Muslim regardless of background and serves as a ‘vehicle’ to allow Muslim students to practise their faith on campus by providing them with necessary means and services…

    The ISoc doesn’t try and pair people up to get married lol, events are segregated and everything like that – I cant fathom how some rumours arise tbh XD

    I’m sure you’ll be able to find others who are in the same position as you…

    In terms of private accmmodation there's Hartley Halls and also Ropemaker Court....

    There's also uni accommodation just for females – St. Gabriel's Hall

    All these options are in close proximity to the university, and you have the option of asking to share with only females (you can request to stay with other sisters in both the private accommodations I think but don't quote me on it)

    Alternatively, you can also search for accommodation by posting in the University of Manchester Islamic Society public Facebook group to ask if there are any spaces/vacancies.

    Ummm, I'm not too sure but just having taken a look online it seems good at first glance

    There's also 'MSV South' close by, which is pretty cheap and good quality.

    Hey, I've been allocated St Gabriel's even though I asked for ensuite and self-catered. Could someone please tell me what the shared bathroom arrangements are as such as how many people on a corridor for how many bathrooms etc. I don't really want to share a bathroom so have been looking at private accommodation though.
