Accessibility - Our Commitment

The University of Manchester Students' Union is committed to having a fully accessible building so everyone can use our facilities and participate in our events, meetings, gigs and parties.

We're constantly improving the accessibility in our building and we were the first Students' Union in the country to be awarded the ‘Access Challenge: Most Improved’ by NUS. The Access Challenge, established to improve access in Students’ Unions, is a partnership between the NUS, national charity Attitude is Everything, Disabled Go and the Changing Places Campaign.

We have also been busy working with Attitude is Everything, a national charity dedicated to improving Deaf and disabled people's access to music venues. We're proud to announce that we have recently been awarded Silver status, and we're working towards Gold. Click here to read more.
