The Mancunion

Britain's biggest student newspaper


The Mancunion is the student newspaper at the University of Manchester.

We’ve been around in various guises since 1969, and emerged out of The Manchester Independent which was founded in the 1920s.

Written and put together by students, The Mancunion creates high-quality, original content focused on Manchester’s student bubble.

We don’t look to cover international politics, nor do we commission lengthy opinion pieces on the state of the nation. This is because as students we know we may not be best placed to cover these issues. Instead, we publish original content, focused on—though not completely limited to—student life and the city of Manchester.

We aim to be an integral part of student life at the University of Manchester, provide excellent opportunities to students wanting to get into journalism, and get our contributors to go from thinking about what they want to write, to what they want to read.
