The attack on Manchester Arena

The thoughts of everyone at our University are with those affected by the shocking events which unfolded at the Manchester Arena on Monday, 22 May.

Our University is coming together to offer support during this difficult time to our students, staff and others in the wider Manchester community.

If you wish to sign the book of condolence you can do so at: www.manchester.gov.uk

We intend to carry on business as usual in the coming days and weeks.

The University’s first priority is always the safety and security of staff, students and visitors to our campus. We have been working with national security services to make sure we have the right security measures in place.  Our Security team is available on campus 24/7 and can provide an immediate response in the event of an emergency or incident.

We are not aware of any specific security threats on campus, however staff, students and visitors to our campus should remain vigilant, and report any suspicious behaviour or activity to our Security team on 0161 306 9966. In an emergency, you should always get to a safe place and call 999.
