New AMBS Building Open from January
The redevelopment of AMBS building in Booth Street West is completed after over three years. Our Global MBA team in Manchester are really looking forward to welcoming students to their new building, with fantastic teaching spaces, study spaces, study areas and facilities.
Apart from the new building, we will also have the Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites Hotels next to AMBS and the new ‘University Green’, a retail and leisure hub; more details about both of these are included below.
Crowne Plaza Hotel
The Crowne Plaza 4*Hotel opened in September 2018 and is located next door to AMBS; so close that it will be a two minute walk from your hotel breakfast, to your classroom! As well as the Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites are located at the top of the hotel and are particularly suitable for students staying for a longer period of time and needing additional facilities during their stay. Students have preferential rates for both these facilities.
A 40,500 square foot retail and leisure hub has been built underneath the new AMBS building and is ready for several exciting brands to open. We have recently seen the opening of Pret and Co-op and look forward to the opening of the rest of the outlets below in the coming months. The varied outlets are sure to encourage students to the area and in turn create a lively atmosphere and a real buzz to the AMBS area of the University Campus.
