Student Activities Home


From joining one of our 460 societies and getting involved with volunteering and Manchester Media Group to everything you need to know about you Halls of Residence, Living at Home and services for Mature Students; the Activities department has you covered. 


From Hiking to Bhangra, Board Games to Philosophy, we have over 460 different societies ready and waiting for you to try. We have a huge variety of religious, cultural, political, academic, arts, media, performance, sports and recreational societies, so there's something for everyone at Manchester. But if you don't find what you're looking for you can always start your own!


Here at the Students' Union we offer plenty of ways for you to get involved in volunteering during your time at University.


We're the Student Communities Team here at the Students' Union. Our job is to ensure that whether you're living in halls or at home, a mature student, carer or parent, we provide you with the best possible support to make your transition to life at university as smooth as possible.

So whether you want to take the lead on planning events in your halls, or just meet like-minded students here in Manchester, there are plenty of opportunities here in the Students' Union.


Here at the Students’ Union, we have three popular and nationally reputable Student Media outlets, The Mancunion, Fuse FM, and Fuse TV. All three are based in the Activities Space on the first floor of the Union, and are always looking for new volunteers, whether you have prior experience or not. Whether you want to go into the media industry, as many of our previous members have done, or just get involved in a creative and fun activity, Student Media is an unmissable opportunity.
