Research departments' facilities

As part of our campus masterplan for the University, we have built and are continuing to build a 21st century campus with cutting-edge research departments and facilities.

The University boasts the world-famous Jodrell Bank Observatory, the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, The Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre (WMIC), the Photon Science Institute, the National Graphene Institute, the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre, the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, the Henry Royce Institute and the collections of our cultural institutions (Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, Manchester Museum, Manchester University Press and the Whitworth). 

The University of Manchester Library is one of the world's greatest research libraries and holds more than 4 million printed books, some 40,000 e-journals, 500,000 e-books, several hundred databases and many special and rare collections. 

Facilities and resources for industry

The University of Manchester's world-class analytical equipment and facilities are primarily used to support our teaching and research activities. However, we also allow our extensive range of state-of-the-art facilities and apparatus to be used by business and industry.

Our facilities and services cater for a wide range of needs, and include library services and an incubation centre for fledgling businesses.
