UEA's Islamic Centre is to remain open. The University of East Anglia

Controversial plans to close the Islamic Centre at the UEA have been put on hold, and plans have been lodged to renew temporary permission for it to remain on campus until 2014
The university planned to shut the centre and adapt the existing multi-faith chaplaincy building to meet the needs of its Muslim students.
