Acoustic quality is an important aspect in the design of spaces including mosques. A mosque as a place of worship 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 to analyze the factors that influence it. This research is a quantitative research that looks at the value of the quality of room acoustics with modelling 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 results of this study indicate that the value of acoustic in Masjid At-Tarbiyah is low as indicated by the high RT value. The value of the RT Masjid AtTarbiyah reaches 7.86 seconds at a frequency of 500kHz as well. The average RT value at Masjid AtTarbiyah is 3,467.
