Acoustic quality is an essential aspect in the design of spaces, including mosques. A mosque as a worship place has several activities that require good acoustic quality, especially in terms of delivering a clear sound. Masjid At-Tarbiyah is one of the mosques on the UIN Malang campus. This research was conducted to determine the value of acoustic quality in the Masjid At-Tarbiyah and analyze the factors that influence it. This research is a quantitative research that looks at the value of room acoustics' quality with modeling and simulation of the Ecotect v.2011 program. The acoustic quality value is calculated based on the reverberation time value known from the simulation-based on observations and physical measurements of space in the field. The RT value reaches 7.86 seconds at a frequency of 500kHz, and the average RT is 3.467 seconds. This study indicates that the value of acoustic in Masjid At-Tarbiyah is low, as indicated by the high RT, so that space improvement is needed.
