Who we are and what we do

Who we are and what we do

Welcome to Manchester Metropolitan University's Cheshire campus.

Our Cheshire campus dates back over 100 years and is home to a community of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the arts, business, education, humanities, sport and social sciences.

Situated within easy walking distance of Crewe - a thriving town with theatres, cinemas, pubs, bars, restaurants, parks and sports facilities - and just over 30 miles from Manchester, our friendly Cheshire campus is where you will instantly feel at home thanks to our strong sense of community.

The Cheshire campus contains everything you need conveniently on one site. This includes accommodation, Students' Union, library, students' hub, sports centre, gym, a sports injury clinic, a centre for contemporary arts, the Axis Arts Centre and Innospace incubator for business and social enterprise.

The campus is home to four departments - Contemporary Arts, Interdisciplinary Studies, Exercise and Sport Science, and Business Management, as well as part of the Faculty of Education. It is also the base for the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce, which provides links with the local business community.

Away from study, the campus is home to an active Students' Union and there are plenty of sports clubs and societies to join. If sport isn't your thing, then the Axis Arts Centre's programme of touring new performance and visual artwork or the easy access to some of the UK's best natural scenery should be right up your street.
