Welcome to the University Of Houston MSA
Established in 1964, the UHMSA was founded as a place for Muslim students attending the University of Houston from all backgrounds and cultures to make friends and find a supportive community. The UHMSA seeks to create a strong unified Muslim student body as well as contribute to bettering our community through public service and outreach programs. Through our community efforts, the UHMSA aims to educate and inform the at large community what Islam truly teaches and what being a Muslim is all about.
UHMSA has always strived to develop the next generation of Muslim leadership both in the city of Houston and beyond. We are proud of our member base and the history this organization has contributed to. Below are some of our recognized alumni.

Acension Mentorship Program
The Ascension Mentorship Program (AMP) is MSA's very own professional development program! AMP aims to connect underclassmen with the resources, knowledge, and skills of successful upperclassmen students & Alumni. We accomplish this through providing each participant professional development workshops, unique resume building activities, a network of upperclassmen/Alumni mentors, and ultimately a community of career-driven Muslim students!
If you would like to access AMP’s Orientation Packet, which highlights program structure and details, please click HERE.
If you would like to be a mentor, please apply HERE.
Please contact email@example.com for all AMP-related questions & concerns.
Applications for the Fall Class of 2019 are now closed. However, AMP’s professional development events are open to the general student body, so keep a lookout for those!
One of UHMSA's major functions is its continuing drive for education, whether it is Islamic, career, or historical knowledge. Often times, UHMSA will host a speaker or create a panel of guests who are more than willing to educate young Muslims. Along with speakers, UHMSA is a strong advocate for interfaith work as well as any opportunity to educate the community about Islam such as our weekly Dawah Table.
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, UHMSA hosts an Interfaith Table, a stop for people going to class to learn about Islam, offering any information and brochures for those curious about Islam.
TIMINGS & LOCATION:
Tuesday 11:00 am - 2:00 pm at the PGH Breezeway
Wednesday 11:00 am - 2:00 pm at the PGH Breezeway
