Update about vandalism on Oxford Road

13 May 2024

In the early hours of the morning, 13 May, the University and Manchester Museum were subject to an act of criminal vandalism.

If you are coming on to campus today, you may see that there has been some criminal damage primarily to The Manchester Museum and Queens Arch, with paint sprayed over part of the building early this morning.

We have CCTV footage of the incident and are working with Greater Manchester Police who are investigating the incident. Meanwhile, specialist paint removal contractors have been called and will be dealing with the damage as soon as possible.

The Museum will be open as usual.
