Manchester Metropolitan University Students' Union

Our building is now open – come and say hello!


The Union is your go-to place to make sure you have the best uni experience possible. Whether you need some new art supplies, a bit of free housing advice or a coffee on the go, we’re here for you.


To make sure you and our staff are as safe as possible when you visit us, we’ve made a few changes.

We’ve installed screens to our shop, cafe and reception, created a clear one-way system so you know where you’re going and there’s loads of free hand sanitiser stations dotted around too.

If you spot something we’ve missed, get in touch and we’ll sort it.

What's changed


The Café


Coffee lovers rejoice! The Café is open and has moved into an even bigger space to allow for social distancing. We're serving a range of our Starbucks drinks and a limited selection of hot and cold takeaway food.


The Union Shop

The Shop


The Shop has reopened and we've expanded both the space and the range of products available to make your shopping experience as safe and enjoyable as possible.





Our Reception team will be on hand to answer any questions you have and point you in the right direction. Please sanitise your hands on entry to The Union using the station provided. The Reception desk will also have a limited supply of disposable face coverings in case you forget yours.

Can't find what you're looking for?

For now, only the ground floor of The Union building is available for students – with limited access to the first floor for you to visit the Finance Office.

This means our meeting rooms (including The Studio, Conference Suite and Media Suite) are currently not available to book for students or societies. We’re constantly reviewing the latest advice and will keep you updated on any changes.


If you have any questions about any of the changes we've made or think there's something we've missed, let us know.
