New 2020 School Office Arrangements

School Office Reception (on the first floor of the Newton building) will be open from 10am to 4pm on week days, but there will just be a single staff member there. This staff is expected to be signposting students around the building and to direct students submitting any queries (where possible) to the ‘Online/Virtual School Office’.

This virtual office will, for example, deal with issues regarding programme-related matters (e.g. registration or resits) and student-facing procedures (e.g. PMCs) issues.

The Virtual School Office can be contacted via the telephone number 0161 295 4600, or the email , and will be open from 8am to 5pm.

Response to emails are expected to be within a 48-hour maximum response time.
