Why choose trains?
Manchester has many train stations within the city centre with Piccadilly and Victoria being the largest. If you live a little far from campus, trains are the best option for you. They operate at regular intervals throughout the day and it offers great flexibility as you can change from train to train depending on your ticket.
Trains from all over the UK arrive at either Victoria or Piccadilly, so getting to university from far away has never been easier. Manchester Oxford Road is the most popular station for MMU students as it is near All Saints Campus. It is also directly linked to Piccadilly with services operating roughly every 10 minutes.
