The University of Manchester
With the University of Manchester located on Oxford Road, it’s central location means it is extremely accessible by several types of transport that are offered by the city. The university is also open to the public, through its associations with The Whitworth Gallery, Manchester Museum, Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, and Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.
Officially established in 2004, the University of Manchester actually has roots back to 1824 as the Mechanics’ Institute. Today the university educates tens of thousands of students every year and is the second largest university in the UK.
Whatever your reason for visiting the university, The Principal Manchester is a great option for accommodation. The university can be easily reached in just over 10 minutes on foot, and the route couldn’t be simpler, with just one road to walk down.
