MMU Didsbury campus contents disposal

MMU Didsbury campus contents disposal

Any community groups, registered charities, schools & educational institutions out there?

The Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) campus at Didsbury is closing and is moving to Birley fields in Hulme this summer. As a result the university will have many items including generic ones such as desks, filing cabinets, sofas and flip-boards, to specialist equipment such as kilns, football goal nets, plan chests, band-saws and pianos which are surplus to requirements

MMU is committed to the environmental and ethical goals of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’, and will be offering these items to external organisations that it has a link to, such as schools and educational establishments, as well as charities and community groups, before recycling what remains.

From mid-May, MMU will be able to consider requests from external organisations for items surplus to requirements. Schools and educational establishments as well as registered charities and community groups will be able to submit an Expression of Interest form to apply for items of furniture and/or equipment that is no longer required by the University.

To ask any questions, contact Lindi Gonzalez or Elizabeth Gaskell, on 0161 247 1378, or email:
