The postcode provided above is for the nearby car park on Charles Street/Sackville Street, and not the venue.
The Harwood Room is located on the 1st floor of the Barnes Wallis Building on the Sackville Street Campus of The University of Manchester, close to Piccadilly Station.
Access to the building is via Altrincham Street which is a pedestrian walkway running through the campus parallel with the railway arches.
Delegates should enter the building on the upper level over the bridge, as there is no access from the Student Hub on the ground floor. There is a large sculpture of a red magnet on the walkway immediately outside the conference entrance into the building.
This is within a 2 minute walk of Piccadilly Station, and the NCP on Charles Street is also just a short walk from the venue.
