Our background

Ecomosque is a unique and exciting project, that will function as a Mosque, community hub and centre of educational excellence, where the true essence of Islam will live and breathe, pushing back the darkness of ignorance.

It is the first Masjid in the UK that will be built on a UK University campus.

Ecomosque was designed by students of the University of Salford through a competition run the University of Salford’s School of the Built Environment. Designed with the highest precision and ecological standard by Hamera Farooq the winning student designer, the Ecomosque will be a landmark located on the Crescent in Salford, which is one of the most prestigious locations in the city; Salford is now home to the BBC’s flagship centre MediaCityUK.

Ecomosque will function as a gateway site into Greater Manchester’s higher education establishment and create a cultural quarter within the University of Salford’s campus. The Ecomosque enjoys the complete support of the USSU (University of Salford Students’ Union), and the University Council. Ecomosque is a once-in-a-lifetime project that will renew the faith’s commitment to the environment and leave a lasting legacy in both architecture and education for generations to come.
