The School's undergraduate computer facilities are located mainly on C floor of the Alliance MBS East building.

How to make contact with staff and students

You need to go through a simple process to receive your own student.manchester.ac.uk email address. This is the main way that the programme administrative staff will keep in touch and relay information to you. You should use your student email address when you need to contact administrative and academic staff. Staff will often use your Manchester email as a quick and easy means of communication.

You will be notified of the detailed arrangements for delivery of messages and other written material to Course Co-ordinators and other academic staff within lectures at the beginning of the first semester. The Course Co-ordinators will provide you with the names and location of the seminar staff for their course. Staff are not in every day as their research commitments frequently take them out of Manchester.

If you need to see a member of staff, please send an email, leave a message giving your telephone number, or you can 'sign up' for an appointment on the office hours schedules displayed outside the staff office doors. You can find staff email addresses, telephone numbers and their location on the staff directory.

Staff directory

The administrative staff cannot take messages for students. Please ensure that friends, family, potential employers, the Careers Service and anyone else who may need to contact you either has your semester-time telephone number, email address and/or postal address or that they contact you in writing via the School, in which case we will email you to come and pick the correspondence up from Alliance MBS East room D20.
