The Nicholls campus is a specialist centre for sport, and home to the Nicholls Community Football Centre of Excellence. A variety of courses are delivered on site, including Business, Care, IT, Nursing, and Medical Sciences.
Nicholls is the home of Arden School of Theatre, offering professional training in the performing arts, while the campus also hosts courses in skills for life and independent living for students with learning difficulties.
Located just one mile south-east of the centre of Manchester, Ardwick has benefited from significant rejuvenation in recent years, with the construction of many facilities for the 2002 Commonwealth Games held nearby in Eastlands and following regeneration of the area that has benefitted from heavy investment by the owners of Manchester City FC.
Nicholls boasts a stunning Grade II listed building with its own gardens, while students can also enjoy a pleasant park and green space, just a short walk away from the campus. Popular live music venue Manchester Apollo, which is also Grade II listed, is close by, as are SportCity and the Etihad Stadium.
Bus routes to Nicholls Campus include 192, 201, 203, 204, 205 and 206. Ardwick Railway Station is near the campus.
Nicholls has two car parks, accessible from Ford Street. The football centre has its own car park, which can be accessed from Dolphin Street.
