The Islamic Center at NYU serves the Muslim population at NYU, a private institution of higher education and research located in lower Manhattan, in one of the world’s most innovative and important cities. Unlike most university-based Muslim organizations that are student run, the Islamic Center at NYU is overseen by the Office of the Muslim Chaplain, established to meet the needs of its growing membership.

The Islamic Center at NYU caters to a wide and growing audience, reaching not only Muslims in New York City but also individuals from other communities. The Islamic Center at NYU is dedicated to fostering a sense of awareness, activism and scholarship amongst the Muslim community both on and off campus.
