Tufts University offers convenient and accessible spaces to support the prayer life of the Muslim community on campus. Throughout the academic year, Friday prayers are held at the Tufts Interfaith Center (58 Winthrop St. in Medford) at 1:15pm. Tufts has three custom-designed prayer rooms for individual use located in Curtis Hall, the Cummings Center and in the Tufts’ Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. There is also a small space available for Muslim prayer on the balcony of Goddard Chapel.

A Cultural Landmark

As one of the most diverse Islamic Centers in the United States, serving over 1400 congregants at its Friday services, it’s only fitting the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center stands tall in one of Boston’s most historic neighborhoods. The ISBCC is located in the heart of Roxbury, a neighborhood that was originally founded as a town in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. The rich cultural history is a constant reminder that the ISBCC is not just New England’s largest mosque, but the center is a shared “dream” that is representative of Boston’s multicultural footprint.
