What you need to do

We advise students to check their timetables as soon as possible. If you travel by train and feel that you are not going to be able to get to campus on Wednesday 5 October due to the rail strikes, please contact your course tutor as soon as possible if you feel you are not going to be able to make a teaching session that day.

Alternative travel options

If you do need to travel to campus during strike action we recommend you use alternative transport to travel in and around Manchester. Transport for Greater Manchester can help you plan your journey.
