More in Common Centre

Our new More in Common Centre contains prayer and community rooms, for the use of staff and students across the university, of all faiths and none. The centre is open from 7am-10pm on weekdays and 8am-9pm at the weekends.

Inspired by the Jo Cox Foundation and the More in Common philosophy, this new building will provide space for students and staff to facilitate and participate in significant conversations, education and programmes that celebrate Jo’s famous words “We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.”

The centre will include: 

  • Muslim prayer rooms and specialised wudu washing facilities available throughout the day
  • A large, 200 capacity hall bookable for a variety of events and purposes
  • A social space and shared kitchen area, with free hot drinks, microwave facilities and space to relax, meet friends, or get some work done.
  • Smaller, bookable rooms for a wide range of purposes and events that promote and enhance our ‘More in Common’ philosophy
  • Outside space to enjoy the fresh air (maybe more so in summer!)

Do come in and say hello, we’d love to get to know you and show you the facilities the centre offers. You can also contact us via our email address
