Buildings & Facilities


Our programmes are all based in buildings close to Grosvenor Park at the main All Saints Campus. The Geoffrey Manton Building accommodates the Departments of English, History and Economic History, Information and Communications, Politics and Philosophy, and Sociology.


The building, prominently located on the main Oxford Road leading to the city centre, is light and airy, constructed around a central atrium which also provides space for exhibitions. The seven large lecture theatres, computing suites (four computer laboratories in addition to a drop-in centre with around 120 computers) and general teaching accommodation provide students with purpose built facilities of a very high standard.

The Departments of Languages and Economics are housed in the Mabel Tylecote Building which is linked by a covered walkway to the Geoffrey Manton Building .

The Mabel Tylecote building houses the Faculty’s satellite viewing centre, which provides a drop-in facility offering fourteen foreign language channels.The All Saints Campus is close to the heart of central Manchester and provides the base for approximately 10,000 students from three faculties.

It is well served by public transport being located on one of the busiest bus routes in the city.

Students benefit from the ease of access to central facilities for sport and recreation, the main library, the Student Services Centre and the Students’ Union Building as well as the wealth of cultural and social facilities available in the city itself.

The main University Library, which as part of the Consortium of academic libraries in Manchester (CALIM) and which facilitates access to University staff and students to other University Libraries in Manchester, is also located on the All Saints site.
