Union Bar

The Union Bar is at the heart of student life; a warm and cosy place to shelter from the ‘Rainy City’ - but when the sun cracks the flags, there’s nowhere better placed on campus to soak up the sun. Our drinks are cheap and our food is tasty!


The Store

The Store is your one-stop-shop for day-to-day essentials such as stationery, toiletries and more. The Store also stocks a large range of University of Manchester branded clothing, merchandise and memorabilia of your time at Manchester. You can also shop The Store online.
