Minute's silence to mark second anniversary of Manchester Arena attack

A minute's silence will take place on Wednesday 22 May at 12.50pm outside University House.

In collaboration with KidsCan, who lost their friend and fundraiser Martin Hett in the Attack, and the VC’s Fun Run, the University of Salford will stand together to observe this moment of reflection to remember those who lost their lives on that day, and the hundreds of other individuals also affected.

We will gather on the Broadwalk outside University House from 12.45pm, joined by University Chaplains who will lead a short address before the silence takes place at 12.50pm. The Fun Run will then commence at 1pm raising funds for KidScan.

Exams and Assessments will proceed as planned without interruption.
