University Place – The University of Manchester

Located at the centre of the campus, University Place houses the largest dedicated lecture theatre in the Greater Manchester region. It is an ideal venue for large national and international conferences and high profile events, and boasts the most up-to-date audio-visual aids and a large number of flexible, flat floored rooms which are available for side meetings. 

The University’s Gift Shop is located in the building. The majestic Whitworth Hall and equally impressive Manchester Museum are across the street, and the Whitworth Art Gallery is a ten minute walk up Oxford Road.
