26 Aug 20202m read


The University of Manchester

The University of Manchester’s strong heritage as a place of excellence for learning and innovation, combined with its sheer scale, provides event organisers with a choice of amazing spaces for events from 2 to 1,000 delegates. The venues include iconic Manchester buildings and, with the continued investment in the University infrastructure, they also offer stylish, contemporary venues. Many of the amazing spaces are available all year round for smaller meetings and training days, or for drinks receptions and dinners in venues like the stunning neo-gothic Whitworth Hall for up to 300 guests. During the vacation periods, they can host national and international conferences for up to 1,000 delegates and summer residential events in the student halls of residence.

Manchester Metropolitan University

Manchester Metropolitan University is centrally located with great public transport routes. The Conference and Events team will help you find the ideal venue for your event. They provide a range of innovative, accessible space, great technology, specialist facilities and residential accommodation, all at competitive rates.
