“Upgraded” means they now have a full blown mosque on campus to the exclusion of all others.
Is La Trobe becoming a title mill for Mohammedans?
MELBOURNE, May 2 (Bernama) — The prayer room for Muslim students at La Trobe University here has reopened after a A$927,000 (RM2.725 million) refurbishment.
Head of the university’s Islamic Society, Mohamad Tabbaa said the refurbished rooms, complete with new washrooms, carpeting and heating, had been doubled in size to fit the growing number of Muslim students at the university.
La Trobe has 1,500 Muslim students.
“We’re very happy with it and appreciate what the university has done,” Tabbaa told the Leader newspaper.

He said up to 300 people could fit in the new room, a welcome change after students had previously been forced to pray outside when the old room was full.
University Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Johnson told the newspaper the refurbished building would help students meet the demands of tertiary study and the daily ritual of prayer.
The university has also released a new guide for Muslim students, which contains information about where to get halal food, mosque locations and the details of Muslim student societies.
