Getting around Manchester

The University of Manchester is located in the city centre in immediate proximity to over 7,500 bedrooms as well as the city's attractions, bars and shops. This gives delegates extra time to enjoy the conference programme and network with colleagues.


Manchester city centre has a wide offer of high-quality public realm which, combined with its compact and manageable size, makes it an easy place to traverse on foot.
Metroshuttle – Free bus network
Delegates will benefit from a free city centre bus service known as Metroshuttle, which offers three circular routes covering all of the main areas. Metroshuttle operates with a frequency of about every 5 minutes on Service 1 (orange), every 10 minutes on Service 2 (green) and every 10 minutes on Service 3 (purple). Metroshuttle links all city centre railway stations, the main car parks, and many bus and Metrolink tram stops.
You can find more information on Metroshuttle routes and their frequencies here.
The Metrolink tram network is the largest urban tram network in the UK, consisting of multiple lines bringing passengers into the heart of Manchester city centre. This gives delegates the opportunity to easily visit further afield should they wish.
You can find more information on Metrolink on their homepage.
