UMSC runs many trips semesterly to various locations around the UK including two legendary trips to Newquay in Cornwall, chilly trips to Abersoch in Wales and many more. Trips are ran at the weekends with the odd day trip thrown in now and again when we are feeling too dry. During the holidays UMSC also runs week long trips to Morocco and various places in Europe and you cannot come to University without experiencing a trip abroad.

There are no waves in Manchester but there are many many pubs. UMSC has weekly socials and many larger nights out, so if you are looking for just a pint or a full on knees up feel free to join in. Check out our calendar to find out whats going on.


UMSC has weekly socials in Fallowfield every Tuesday. We are currently working out a location with our sponsors to make sure you get maximum bang for your buck, not to mention a great evening! Check the Facebook page for developments. Socials will begin weekly on Tuesday 25th

UMSC also runs regular bigger socials to a variety of places with a variety of themes, we are planning to have this year:

  • a MASSIVE sign up social ending in a pub crawl through Fallowfield.
  • a 3 legged night out..where you get tied to an existing member unknown to you and hop/dance/crawl the night away (bathroom breaks arranged no worries)
  • AU socials
  • Currys
  • Film Nights
  • Indo board competitions
  • Waterworld social (yes thats right we go to our local water theme park and say that we are surf 'training')
  • Gigs at Deaf Institute/Acadamy/Sound Control (if you have any ideas get in touch with our Social Sec)
  • and many more trips to the pubs
