    A novel miniaturized five band metamaterial inspired slot antenna is reported. The proposed design consists of a ring monopole and metamaterial Rectangular Complementary Split Ring Resonator (RCSRR) as the radiating part, two L and one T–shaped slot as the ground plane, respectively. Miniaturization in the proposed design is accomplished by metamaterial RCSRR, and also, it helps the antenna to operate at 2.9 and 5.2 GHz frequency bands. The aforementioned miniaturization process leads to about 46.8% reduction in volume of the proposed design, as compared to the conventional antenna. The pass band characteristics of the metamaterial RCSRR through waveguide medium are discussed in detail. In order to enhance the operating abilities of the miniaturized antenna, slots are etched out in the ground plane, thereby making the miniaturized antenna further operate at 2.4, 5.6 and 8.8 GHz, respectively. The proposed design has an active patch area of only, with dB bandwidth of about 4.16% (2.35–2.45 GHz), 5.71% (2.63–2.76 GHz), 10.25% (4.44–4.92 GHz), 6.25% (5.42–5.77 GHz) and 2.39% (8.68–8.89 GHz) in simulation, and about 6.86% (2.25–2.41 GHz), 5.01% (2.55–2.7 GHz), 9.16% (4.58–5.02 GHz), 5.38% (5.79–6.11 GHz) and 5.42% (8.44–8.91 GHz) in measurement. The antenna has good impedance matching, acceptable gain and stable radiation characteristics across the operational bandwidths.
