Auditoriums and Meeting Halls
The university has two main auditoriums which both together have 500 seats. These are venues for holding conferences, lectures, and other various socio-cultural events as well as intramural functions.
The observatory was officially inaugurated in 2010 coincident with the National Week of Astronomy. In the first year of its operation, student members of Astronomy Society of Khayyam University succeeded in capturing a solar eclipse and observing a stellar occultation.
The first lunar eclipse, occurring in the second decade of the new millennium, was recorded through the cooperative efforts of Student Astronomy Society, Department of Physics and the Computer Centre of the university.
In 2012, the transit of Venus was observed by the students of Astronomy Society. This astronomical observation was made possible through the coordination and exchange of data with Malaysia and Japan.
Aside from such research activities, the observatory holds training courses for enthusiastic students about the observation of heavenly bodies. Dr. Fatemeh Salehi, a faculty member of Physics Department, is in charge of the observatory and relevant training programs.
