MMU Student’s Union

Carmel Smickersgill, Tours & Activities Editor
MMU

The social heart of Manchester Metropolitan University, situated on the cusp of Hulme and Oxford Road Corridor. The MMU Student’s Union is the place to hang out, eat, drink and relax but often hosts events for the whole community, not just their own students.
