Amazing location. Unrivalled inspiration.


Did you know our Peel Park campus is set in 46 square kilometres of lush, green space? But we're also just over a mile from the big city buzz of Manchester - offering world-class culture, exciting events, superior sport and legendary nightlife. Together, it creates one unrivalled study destination.

Once at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester and Salford have a rich architectural legacy. Amongst the red brick powerhouses, you’ll find inspiration in Neo-Gothic, Palazzo, Neoclassical and Art Deco styles. Renowned for industrial heritage and innovation, both cities continue to grow and develop.

This winning combination of historic buildings and modern structures inspires our MArch Architecture programme philosophy exploring the post-industrial city.
