Ardwick is one-mile South East of Manchester City Centre and close to the city's universities. Substantial rejuvenation of the area has taken place in recent years, most notably with the construction of many facilities for the 2002 Commonwealth Games held nearby in Eastlands. 

Nicholls Campus includes an impressive Grade II listed building with its own gardens. There’s a small park within walking distance of the campus and a green space across the road. The nearby Manchester Apollo is a 3,500 capacity live music venue, and is also Grade II listed. Sportcity and the City of Manchester Stadium are five minutes away by car.
