Media Relations

Reporters Start Here!

Before coming to campus, please review these Media Access Policies.

From helping reporters and editors meet a looming deadline to assisting with in-depth news features, Manchester University Media Relations and Strategic Communications have all of the connections. We can link you with faculty experts, students and others in the know. Need to know some background information? We can save you precious minutes and hours.

We're serious about connecting you with the strongest sources for your stories and helping you collect the best photos. We can help you navigate our private campuses, ensuring you make the most of your valuable time with us.

Photos? No problem! In most cases, we can arrange easy access for your photographers and provide high-quality, high-resolution photos from University resources.

Because of COVID-19, all visitors must be approved before coming to campus. Masks and social distancing are required.
