Mathematics at the Victoria University of Manchester


The Victoria University of Manchester (VUM) merged with the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) in 2004 to form The University of Manchester. The two former Departments of Mathematics joined together to form the School of Mathematics. In 2007 the School moved into a new building at the heart of the campus: the Alan Turing Building. The School is one of the largest integrated schools of mathematics in the UK, with around 75 permanent lecturing staff and over 1000 undergraduates.

As the School moves ahead it is important to keep an eye on the past, and to maintain valuable historical information about the predecessor departments. I know from emails I receive and contact with alumni (most recently at a reception in London last summer) that former students and staff like to look at photos and documents relating to their time here.

I have previously made available various documents and photos concerning the VUM Mathematics Tower on Oxford Road.

Now I have scanned five documents that provided information for prospective and current VUM mathematics undergraduates.
