The Union

When you enrol at Manchester Metropolitan University you automatically become a member of the Students’ Union. There are so many ways The Union can help and support – to make sure you get the most out of your time at Manchester Met.

A space to call your own

The Union can be found at the heart of the Manchester campus. Within The Union you’ll find a bar, a shop, a café and an event space, as well as lots of casual seating areas and plenty of free, bookable meeting rooms, a dance and film studio, media suite and quiet study spaces.

We also have a base on the Cheshire campus where you’ll find a dedicated and friendly team of Student Officers and staff offering representation, opportunities and advice, a great café and shop and a lively calendar of events.

Both our Union spaces are open and accessible to all students so do pop along.
