Sustainability Challenge 2017

Welcome to Manchester! On Tuesday of Welcome Week, 19th September, you and the 8,000 other new undergraduates, will take part in the Sustainability Challenge, one of the biggest events on Campus, and the first step on your way to achieving the Manchester Leadership Award.

19 SEP The University of Manchester


All 8,000 students taking part in the Sustainability Challenge will be allocated to mixed disciplinary rooms.  The Challenge will take place in lots of locations, and will start at different times through the day.  It’s important that you find out the location and start time for your Sustainability Challenge before Tuesday 19th September.

How will I find out where to go and when?

We will send you an email by the end of the day on Friday 15th September telling you where to go and when.  The email will be sent to your University of Manchester email address, and to the personal email address you gave the University. Please check both email accounts.

The email will be sent from the University of Manchester and the subject line will read:

Sustainability Challenge: where to go and when.

The Sustainability Challenge will also be added to your Personalised Timetable, which you can access via the My Manchester Home Page on Monday 18th September.

Each Sustainability Challenge session will start promptly, so please aim to arrive at your room 10 minutes before the start time. 

What if I don’t receive an email?

If you haven’t received an email by Monday 18th September, and you cannot access your personalised timetable, you can find out when you are doing the Sustainability Challenge by either visiting your School Office or visiting one of the Sustainability Challenge Help Desks:
