We’re based in Carlton House in the heart of Manchester City Centre. Located in Albert Square – home to the city’s Town Hall – you’ll have everything from Manchester City/United’s victory parade to the Christmas lights switch on, vigils and protests right on your doorstep.

A five-storey, Grade II listed building, Carlton House is one of Manchester’s most prestigious addresses.

The office is within short walking distance from Manchester Victoria and Piccadilly Rail Stations, and Deansgate Tram Station.

We’re a ten-minute walk from Oxford Road Station and the major bus corridor down to Fallowfield, Withington and Rusholme – all popular places to live for students.

Buses run every couple of minutes into the early hours of the morning on most nights of the week and all operators have specially-priced student tickets.

The nearest Metrolink stop is St Peter’s Square which is a three-minute walk away. From here trams can be boarded to MediaCityUK, Didsbury, Altrincham and Manchester Airport.

Tram times vary but midweek run from 5.50am to 11.50pm and from 5.50am to 1.00am at the weekend. For more information log onto the Transport for Greater Manchester website.

It is also easily accessible by car from the north or south of the city using the M56, M62 or M60 leading to either the A57 Mancunian Way, A56 Chester Road or the A34.
