Manchester University Geographical Society (MUGS)

Manchester University Geographical Society (MUGS) is your point of contact for anything from where the best bars and nightclubs are in Manchester, to the location of your first lecture, tutorial or seminar.

The Manchester University Geographical Society (more affectionately known as MUGS) is a society run by geography students for geography students. It is the oldest society at the University, having been in existence for more than 120 years.

MUGS organises many cheap social events throughout the year where students mix with other year groups. This can prove invaluable when it comes to exam period or choosing course units for the next semester.

The society offers a large range of discount wristbands and VIP entry during socials, which makes being a member truly worthwhile. The highlight of the social calendar is without doubt the end of year ball, or GloBall as it has been named.

On the academic side, intellectual interests are met with guest lecturers, seminars and debates throughout the year - a great source of knowledge when it comes to essay writing or exam preparation.
