From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) is a Recognised Independent Centre of the University of Oxford, England. It was established in 1985 with the aim of encouraging the academic study of Islam and the Muslim world. The centre's Patron is Prince Charles.[1][2]

A new building [1] for the centre is situated to the east of central Oxford on Marston Road, next to Magdalen College. The building blends the architecture of traditional Oxford colleges with a classical Islamic style [2]. It includes a mosque with a striking dome and minaret [3], a new addition to the famous Oxford skyline.

The founding director of the centre is Dr Farhan Nizami, CBE.
