Manchester Metroplitan Students' Union

The £10 million Students' Union building is perfect for student events, meeting friends, or catching up on your studies.

There’s a whole range of activities to try out, organised by societies such as the Islamic Society and African-Caribbean Society.

60 sports clubs cover everything from archery to water polo, and from Chinese boxing to Wing Tsun. And if your sport isn’t provided, they can help you set up a new club.

A range of confidential support is also on offer from the Students' Union Advice Centre.

Sports and recreation

Manchester Metropolitan University has a close relationship with the Manchester Sport and Leisure Trust. This means you'll experience some of the best sporting facilities in the region - including an indoor BMX track, a velodrome, and an indoor and outdoor athletics venue.

Your campus sporting experience includes an athletics track, swimming pool, badminton, squash, netball and basketball courts, fitness studios, and indoor football pitches. You'll also enjoy substantial discounts including pay-as-you-go membership for city centre facilities such as the Manchester Aquatics Centre.

You can take part in over 60 student-led sports clubs, or speak to your Students' Union about setting-up something new. Not sure what to choose? Free taster sessions are available to sample a range of activities, including aikido, canoeing, cheerleading, Chinese boxing, dance, hockey, and water polo.
