You’ll find the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care in the state-of-the-art Brooks building, on Manchester Metropolitan University’s Manchester campus.

The new, award-winning, £139m development opened in October 2014 and it’s home to Manchester Met’s Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care and Faculty of Education. 

Situated a short walk from the other half of our Manchester campus, students are minutes away from the bustling retail and cultural heart of the city. The Brooks building is also perfectly located for the new £10m Student Union, which opened in 2015.

As well as the Brooks building, some of the facilities you’ll find here are environmentally friendly student homes, a community orchard, and woodland and wetland area.

Inside the Brooks building are outstanding specialist facilities across all areas of health, psychology, social care, and education. There are ground floor spaces that the public can use too, including cafes, a drama and dance studio, and Manchester Movement Unit, a physiotherapy and acupuncture clinic.

Some of the facilities for Manchester Met students include:

You can now book facilities at the Brooks building for conferences and events.

Students studying at the Brooks building have full access to Manchester Met’s recently refurbished Sir Kenneth Green Library.

The University’s £5m investment in the library provides a new helpdesk, a new IT Zone on the first floor and a Quiet Study Zone on the fourth floor.

To help our students access study materials and workspace at a time that suits them, the Sir Kenneth Green Library is open 24/7 during term time. 


The new development integrates the Brooks academic building, student accommodation and an energy centre all on the same site.

Designed as one of the greenest facilities in the UK, the innovative Brooks building uses a number of environmental technologies to minimise the University’s environmental impact and enhance biodiversity in the local area.

As part of the University's wider environmental strategy, our objective is to achieve the Three Zeros:

As a result of our environmental objectives, Manchester Metropolitan University was voted 'The UK's Greenest University 2013' by People and Planet's Green League.
