Student Map at Freshers’ Week

student map promo

Well what a week that was! Over the past week our valiant street team equipped new and old Manchester students alike with the essential student map.

If you were about Oxford Road you probably spotted us (looking a bit ridiculous) and our 1962 Vespa (looking very dapper) amongst the huge crowds of students around both MMU and UMSU freshers’ fairs. But if you didn’t, have a gander of some of the pics we managed to snap below.

The whole week was fantastic. We met lots of great people and got an amazing response from students, with quite a few dismissing us as another generic flyer before sneaking back to pick up a student map!

We’ve always been keen on introducing a new way of on-street student marketing to reduce the crazy amount of waste (often unread) flyers produce. The whole week we only spotted 2 of our special maps on the floor (which we of course rehabilitated), and we know lots of students have already put their maps up on their walls, if only to cover breeze block or a few holes.

Of course, we’re not just about the printed student map.. we have spent over 9 months developing the ultimate resource for Manchester student life online. The website now lists the best upcoming student events and club nights, feeds in local part-time jobs, aggregates Manchester student discounts and of course gives local businesses and societies a platform to reach local students.

And there’s a whole lot more to come throughout the whole year. Keep tuned in with us by registering and following us on Twitter.
