Summer updates

While you've been away we've been hard at work improving the University ready for your return, including updating My Manchester. We've rounded up a list of what’s new to look out for when you arrive back.

New and improved My Manchester

Have you checked out the all-new My Manchester yet? We've been working hard to make sure that you can find the services, support, advice and he information you need, when and where you want it most. Use My Manchester to access everything you need for your course, your extra-curricular activities, and your University services.

Everything look different? Don't worry; we've put together a user guide so you can get to grips with the new interface in no time.

Changes to Oxford Road

Oxford Road is being transformed into a pedestrian-friendly boulevard giving priority to buses, taxis, emergency vehicles and bicycles during the day. This means faster bus journeys to uni and into the city and more punctual services that you can rely on.

Transport for Greater Manchester are supporting the cycling initiative in the city, and with Oxford Road being developed into a more cycle-friendly space, it's an ideal time to take advantage of their free training opportunities.

Better cycling facilities will make your ride into uni easier, safer and altogether more convenient with segregated cycle lanes and 'Dutch-style' bike bypasses that separate cyclists from buses.

Don't forget, the SU run a bike hire scheme, and we offer subsidised gold-standard bike locks for only £15 (RRP £40) and run a free bike marking service.

Faculty restructure

The new faculty structure came into place on 1 August, and we are now made up of three faculties: the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the Faculty of Humanities.
