A world-class estate for a world-class university
We strive for excellence – not only in teaching, learning and research, but in the environment we provide for our exceptional people. That’s why we’re investing £1 billion over ten years to create an inspiring and progressive environment, designed for the 21st century.
On completion of the Campus Masterplan, The University of Manchester will be a world-class university with a world-class estate to match. It will boast an urban campus at the heart of a vibrant city, which nurtures excellence and creativity, reflecting our history of achievement and looking forward to a prosperous future.
This new extension will help improve the student experience, diversify recruitment, enhance transferable skills and increase student employability.
This ambitious project will transform the way we educate future engineers in response to the needs of the fast-changing global economy.
Since its redevelopment The Whitworth has been awarded a RIBA National Award and the Museum of the Year award.
