A vibrant campus in the heart of the city, Shena Simon is renowned for its industry-leading performing arts and music courses.

Students benefit from state-of-the-art media facilities and two theatres – Sackville and Waterside – both of which play host to a number of student performances throughout the year.

Shena Simon is situated in the city centre, opposite Manchester’s Gay Village. A short stroll away from the hustle and bustle of the shops on Market Street. The hugely-popular Northern Quarter, home to some of the city’s trendiest bars and coffee shops, is also close by.

The campus is next to the idyllic Whitworth Gardens, also known as Sackville Park. Shena Simon’s proximity to Piccadilly makes travelling a straightforward, convenient process.

Shena Simon is close to the Piccadilly bus station, so can be reached from all bus routes into the city centre. Piccadilly Gardens Metrolink is also nearby, while Oxford Road and Manchester Piccadilly railway stations are just a few minutes’ walk away from the campus.
