IIUM aims to provide a pleasant experience to all our graduands, their guests and our visitors during the convocation ceremony. As such, we have provided the following facilities. The list may not be complete, and our friendly committee would be happy to answer your inquiry or provide an assistance if necessary.

Kindly note that during the Covid-19 pandemic, usage of some of these facilities may be subjected to current restriction imposed by the Government of Malaysia.

Prayer area

We would like to suggest that everyone should already have performed the obligatory solah prior to the start of event. However, if needed, there are places provided to perform solah.

The mosque, located right in the centre of IIUM is the obvious choice. Its huge praying area welcomes its visitors. Ablution areas are available inside and outside of the mosque.

Inside the IIUM Cultural Centre (ICC), where the convocation ceremony is being held, there are 2 praying areas provided for brothers and sisters respectively. Each is equipped with an ablution area.


We encourage everyone to have their meals prior to entering the hall. However, IIUM has cafes, food courts and mobile food trucks (subject to availability). You may also find food outlets away from the adjacent vicinity of the main event.

The Mahallahs' food courts, for example, offer a variety of food that should cater to everyone's palate. Some are even viral in social media and sought after by many. There are also other eateries at our Kulliyyah buildings and other locations. 

While dining on campus may save time and seems logical, food outlets outside our campus are also in abundance. The food selections range from local dishes to international delicacies


Many, if not all, of our restrooms have provision for people with special needs. Our committee is always happy to assist you should you have any.

Banks, ATM and Convenience Stores

The main hall is adjacent to banks and automated teller machines (ATM) so that you may be able to get some cash if necessary. There is a number of convenience stores available nearby for you to get whatever you need.

Parking and Traffic Management

Parking spaces will be managed by our security personnel and we ask everyone to abide by their directions and not park indiscriminately. Please follow all traffic orders to avoid unnecessary congestion.


IIUM does not provide accommodation during the convocation ceremony. There are a lot of lodging option available for everyone. There are homestays, hotels and motels available nearby. Book early to avoid any disappointment.
