Flooding on Oxford Road and nearby buildings

There is currently extensive flooding on the Oxford Road area of our campus. This is due to a broken water main on Oxford Road. The flooding is severely disrupting travel to the site, and has forced the closure of several buildings.

The following buildings are currently shut:

  • Students’ Union and Academy
  • John Owens Building
  • Alan Gilbert Learning Commons
  • The Samuel Alexander Building
  • Student Services Centre
  • Stephen Joseph Studio
  • Mansfield Cooper Building


Please avoid these buildings and the immediate area around them. We will continue to update this list so please keep checking back.

We will keep you updated on our social media channels, StaffNet and MyManchester news.

We are sorry for the disruption this is causing and please be patient as we work with the emergency services and United Utilities to resolve the situation.

You can also obtain travel advice from Transport for Greater Manchester.
