Buildings and Facilities

Our new buildings and facilities form some of the best learning environments of any university in the UK.

We are located on the University’s All Saints campus, which is close to the centre of Manchester and home to approximately 10,000 students. The university has invested £350 million in capital spending over 10 years, with our Faculty benefiting from new buildings and equipment that facilitates great learning with a sense of community, that is especially valuable in the humanities.

Geoffrey Manton Building

Our Geoffrey Manton building is constructed around a large central atrium making it light, airy and an excellent venue for the regular exhibitions and conferences hosted here. The ground floor Student Hub provides a centralised information and advice service for students, alongside recently refurbished social areas, a bistro café and a Faculty-hosted “book exchange”. 

Teaching facilities include:

Number 70

From September 2015, the University will be temporarily relocating a number of staff and students to Number 70, Oxford Street. The subject areas affected are Multimedia JournalismCreative WritingLanguages, and our public engagement programme, Humanities in Public.

The move is to a superb period building only a short walk from All Saints, at 70 Oxford Street (formerly known as the Cornerhouse). The building will be named Number 70 and will become an exciting and vibrant University hub for the performing arts, culture and media.

The temporary relocation is to enable us to manage the removal of the Mabel Tylecote building, further along the Oxford Road, which is being replaced with a stunning new University Arts and Cultural Hub that is planned to open in September 2018.
