About Us

What is the Rice MSA?

The Rice University Muslim Student Association is an open organization welcoming individuals from all backgrounds. We attempt to foster Islamic Awareness in our campus, as well as beyond the hedges. We are open to any suggestions and feedback that may better carry out our mission statement. The Rice MSA holds a variety of events throughout the year that cater to both the Muslim members and the general Rice community. These events include Fast-A-Thon, Ramadan iftars, Eid banquets, guest lecturers, and Islam Immersion Week, as well as community service events.

Prayer Times

Jummah Prayer

Jummah prayers are usually on Fridays at two times: 1 PM in the prayer room, and 2 PM in the Kyle Morrow Room (KMR), on the third floor of Fondren Library. To get there, after entering Fondren Library from the front entrance, turn left into the small area, and take the elevator on the left to the third floor. The KMR will be the first set of double doors on your left as you exit the elevator.

Occasionally, Jummah prayer may be held in a different location. Sign up for our mailing list to stay updated about Jummah prayer locations.
