    My friend goes to Manchester uni, which is on the same street as MMU, she doesn't exactly have stories of safety in manchester. Nothing has happened to her directly though. It seems okay, just like any other major city really. The center is a bit of a walk.

    Manchester is a great city in terms of night life but it is not the safest of places to be. The All Saints campus is on Oxford Road which is close to the city centre which has the Arndale shopping centre, the Printworks, Affleck's Palace etc. Other campuses are scattered around Manchester. The Didsbury campus is not that close but there are plenty of buses that would take you into the city centre.

    http://www.mmu.ac.uk/the-guide/ This site, which is part of the MMU website, will give you some idea of what Manchester is like and places to visit.

    I study there and live in Cambridge halls, I really enjoy living in Manchester!
    I generally preferred MMU to UoM, just had a better feel imo.
    Safety wise, I wouldn't walk around on my own at night! But I guess that is like any major city.
    Its about a 20/25 min walk to the Arndale from All Saints Campus
    Hope this helps
