Observing Ramadan at King’s

Four lit Ramadan lanterns of different sizes and colours.

King’s values the diversity of our community. We're committed to creating an inclusive environment that promotes equality of opportunity for everyone. We therefore want to provide a safe and inclusive environment with facilities and arrangements to ensure that our community are able to observe Ramadan alongside studying, working and living on campus.

This year, Ramadan is expected to run from Wednesday 22 March 2023 to Thursday 20 April 2023 (depending on the sighting of the moon). Many Muslim students and staff will be fasting during this time. Below we share a variety of support services available during Ramadan and throughout the year:

King’s Sport & Wellness

The King’s Sport & Wellness team has created two guides to help you keep healthy during Ramadan:

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 staff and 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 King's College London Islamic Society (KCL ISOC).

To get in touch, you can email the Islamic Society or follow them on Instagram.

Examination support

We’re aware that observing Ramadan may have an impact on your preparation for coursework and revision.

If you’re concerned about this, check out the article Support for students taking assessments during Ramadan.
