Take a Tour


The Geoffrey Manton building is one of Manchester Met’s hidden gems located opposite the Aquatics Centre on Oxford Road.

The main highlight of the building is the impressive central atrium. This is ideal for small exhibitions, refreshments and networking receptions.  It is an ideal venue for a conference with easy access to five ground floor lecture theatres and two larger lecture theatres on the lower ground floor, as well as numerous meeting rooms on the upper floors. Access is easy with a modern central staircase or lifts to all floors.
