Our facilities

Our campus has benefited from £45m in recent investment – creating a site that ranks alongside the very best. We have inspirational and first-class learning environments for every learner: including our £9m Construction and Health & Life Sciences Centres. Other recent changes include new simulation suites which mirror real-life hospital wards, nursery and a gym.

This is linked to modernising our curriculum and has delivered a state-of-the-art campus we’re proud of. We have inspirational first-class environments where every learner can fulfil their true potential – and where we can equip them with the skills they need.

As well as sports and classes organised by our Personal Development Team, for leisure and downtime we also have a hair and beauty salon, student gym, student union and eating areas such as the Viewpoint Café, boasting stunning views of the Manchester skyline and beyond.
