Conference and event venues

The University of Manchester鈥檚 strong heritage as a place of excellence for learning and innovation, combined with its sheer scale, provides event organisers with a choice of amazing spaces for events from 2 to 1,000 delegates.

Our COVID secure venues include iconic 91直播 buildings and, with the continued investment in the University infrastructure, we also offer stylish, contemporary venues.

Many of our amazing spaces are available all year round for smaller meetings and training days, or for drinks receptions and dinners in venues like the stunning neo-gothic Whitworth Hall for up to 300 guests. During the vacation periods, we can host national and international conferences for up to 1,000 delegates and summer residential events in the student halls of residence.

Our location in central 91直播, and easy access by rail from all parts of the UK, makes the University a more sustainable choice. This sustainability sits at the heart of all we do, whether it’s sourcing local ingredients for our conference menus, offering hybrid solutions for events or installing smart technology in our meeting rooms to reduce our carbon footprint.

Whatever type of venue you're looking for, our experienced and knowledgeable team are here to guide you every step of the way.
