Observing Ramadan at King’s

Four lit Ramadan lanterns of different sizes and colours.

This year, Ramadan is expected to be from Sunday 10 March to Monday 8 April or Tuesday 9 April (depending on the sighting of the new moon). Many Muslim students and staff will be fasting during this time - we would like to wish you a joyful and fulfilling Ramadan. 


Ramadan Greeting from the Dean

Guidance and support during Ramadan

We have facilities and arrangements to ensure that our community can observe Ramadan while studying, working, and living on campus.

We offer support services and advice for both those observing and not observing the holy month. You can read the Student Services article on where you can get support during Ramadan.

King’s Sport & Wellness

The King’s Sport & Wellness team has created a range of resources to help you maintain your health during Ramadan. Whether you’re fasting or not, they’ve got you covered.

From Monday 11 March - Friday 15 March, the Strand and London Bridge gyms will be opening an hour earlier so that our Muslim members have some time to train before sunrise.

Throughout the month of Ramadan, both the Strand and London Bridge gyms will be providing dates during Iftar (sunset) which our Muslim members are welcome to take up to break their fasts.

For valuable insights on balancing physical training while observing Ramadan, read advice from Joshua Montella, a coach at King’s Sport & Wellness. You can also explore their dedicated Ramadan resources:

Imams and the Chaplaincy

If you’d like to discuss your thoughts and approach to Ramadan and fasting during your studies, you can contact our Muslim Chaplains:

All of King’s Chaplains are available to talk one-to-one with anyone who would like some pastoral support, regardless of their faith background. You can email the Chaplaincy to make an appointment.

Muslim Prayer Rooms

Our Muslim Prayer Rooms are available to all students to use, enabling everyone to fulfil the requirements of their faith.  The prayer rooms are open during King's Campus opening hours as well as for Friday prayers.

Islamic Society

Students can connect with the Muslim community through the King's College London Islamic Society (KCL ISOC). On this webpage, you can find ways to contact them through email and social media.
