Computing and Digital
In summer 2022 we will open the doors to our brand new City Campus Manchester, located just a 2-minute walk from Manchester Victoria Station.
These new facilities will be the home of our Industry Excellence Academy for Computing and Digital.
Industry-standard facilities that have been developed specifically for your course, include:
- cutting edge IT suites
- maintenance labs fully equipped with the latest high spec kit
- a ‘Click Studio’ where you will collaborate with employers & complete real live briefs for charities, as well as a computer repair service run by students
These amazing new facilities will provide you with access to everything you will see once you enter the workforce, giving you the best possible chance to prepare for a future career.
Working in state-of-the-art facilities as well as being able to develop work experience on campus within our dedicated Click Studio space will allow our students to learn technical skills as well as develop the skillset required to respond to live briefs and deliver work for both internal and industry clients.

How to get to campus
Our City Campus Manchester is located on Great Ducie Street, just across the road from the AO Arena (formerly MEN Arena) and close to all the major transport hubs including Manchester Victoria, Shudehill Station, Piccadilly Bus and Train Stations and the major bus and Metrolink routes into the City centre. These transport hubs provide fantastic transport links both across the city and the wider region. You can find out how to get there from your home address using the Transport for Greater Manchester route planner: Plan a journey | Transport for Greater Manchester (tfgm.com).
We will also have secure storage for over 120 bikes so, with showers on campus, you also have the option to cycle to College.
Additionally, if you are aged 16-18 and live in Greater Manchester, you are entitled to free bus travel across the region seven days a week with ‘Our Pass’
