Incident at Manchester Arena - Safety Advice

Following the recent attack at Manchester Arena, the government raised the UK terror threat level from severe to critical. This has now been amended to severe.

 

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.  Our Security team is available on campus 24/7 and can provide an immediate response.

  

If you see anything that causes you concern or which you feel is suspicious, contact Security on 0161 306 9966.  

 

As always, in an emergency situation, contact the Police on 999 first and then inform University Security.
