MMU has 8 faculties spread across 4 campus sites. Our welcome reps will be on hand at each campus to help you find your way around, answer your questions and direct you towards anywhere that you need to go. Remember, look out for the blue t-shirts!
The union is based in both the All Saints (Manchester) and Cheshire campuses, plus we'll have pop-up hubs at Didsbury, Gaskell and Cheshire. Come and see us to meet your welcome reps and student officers, find out about union services, and buy your wristband or tickets to all our social events. Come along and get involved!
We know that starting university is scary, but it can be extra scary if you are new to the UK too! To help you feel at home at university, and in the UK, MMU International have organised a Welcome Event, which takes place from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 September. This is an opportunity to receive an official welcome from the university and meet other new students from around the world. Find out more on the MMU international website.
The Students’ Union are also here to help you feel as settled as possible – and to help you have as much fun as possible! Come along and get involved in our welcome week events to meet new people and get to know your new home.
Lots of our students don’t live in halls and either live locally or commute to classes. If you don’t want to miss out on the chance to meet and socialise with students outside your course then there are lots of activities you can get involved in during Welcome Week. Make sure you grab a wristband to attend all of the evening events! Taxis can be ordered easily form outside the Union to across Greater Manchester.
At MMU around a third of our students are over the age of 25, including around 5,000 who have children. This means that you’re probably coming to higher education after a period away from studying. We know that juggling family and social life, work commitments and study can be tough at times. Getting back into it can take a bit of getting used to, so why not take the opportunity to meet other people and share the experience?
