Conferencing and Events


We are one of the largest students’ unions in the UK, representing 37,000 students, located in the heart of the MMU campus and named one of the UK’s Best New Buildings by the RIBA National Awards.

Next to The Union we also have The Salutation, a traditional Manchester pub with an upstairs area ideal for meetings, parties and celebrations.


The Union building contains multiple versatile spaces including a large Main Hall, Bar, Conferencing Suite and several meeting rooms. All rooms are equipped with modern AV equipment, free Wi-Fi and furniture available for all types of event.
