Student-Friendly Places to Study in Manchester 

book study space manchester

Manchester is one of the best cities in the UK for students to pursue their studies and degree courses. With well-ranked universities, including the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Salford, you will find a vibrant and exciting student life with several opportunities to socialise in Manchester.

Known for its multiculturalism, students worldwide will find a place for themselves, a home away from home, in Manchester.  

That being said, many students want to study and work from different places in the city, which is natural, given that you can’t sit in your student accommodation all day long. If you are studying in Manchester, you are in for a treat, as you will find a plethora of options to study from different locations. Here is a list of some of the student-friendly places to study in Manchester –  

1. The University Library –  

The University of Manchester Library is one of Manchester’s most sought-after places to study. With over four million printed books and manuscripts and access to many online resources. You will find several silent spots, study rooms, group study rooms and computer rooms which you can use.  

2. Manchester Central Library –  

The Manchester Central Library, located near St. Peter’s Square, is a public library where you can find a peaceful and spacious environment to study. It has dedicated study areas with free wifi and power sockets and a conducive environment for studying. During your break, you can also explore the music room and try your hand at the piano or drums!  

3. Oppidan Social –  

Oppidan Social is a pay-per-minute space which offers students to book study spaces, meeting rooms, and spaces to co-work, making it an unconventional study space. Rather than paying for food and drinks, you pay for the space! There are three Oppidan Social spaces in Manchester, so you can find the one closest to your student accommodation and get studying!

4. The John Rylands Library –  

The John Rylands Library, located on Deansgate in the heart of Manchester, is a gorgeous neo-gothic building which provides a rather unique environment for studying. The reading room and study spaces have a museum-like feel, which may not make you realise that you’re in a library!

5. Cafes –  

Manchester is full of coffee shops and restaurants that are student-friendly, some of the most popular ones being Takk, Chapter One Books, Foundation Coffee Shop, Milk and Honey (for some delicious vegan-friendly food) and North Tea Power. These coffee shops provide wifi, ample seating, power sockets and of course, great coffee!

6. Manchester Art Gallery –  

The Manchester Art Gallery, located on Mosley Street in the city centre, is free and open to the public, and students can use the quiet study area it provides. A wide variety of books and resources are available at the student’s disposal at the Manchester Art Gallery.  

7. The Whitworth Art Gallery –  

The Whitworth Art Gallery, located in Whitworth Park as a part of the University of Manchester, has a dedicated study space for students, with wifi and power sockets. The art gallery also has a cafe that provides refreshments for students. If you like studying the outdoors, this is the perfect place for you!

Being a student in Manchester is a really unique experience, with so much to explore and an affordable cost of living which is a huge selling point amongst students who want to get the full-fledged experience without breaking the bank! If you are a student in Manchester, you should definitely venture out and explore these wonderful and offbeat study places!

Amber and you- AmberStudent is an online student accommodation that helps you secure a home of choice on your study abroad journey. Having served 80 million students (and counting), AmberStudent is your one-stop shop for all your accommodation needs, with great choices for international student housing .

The best alternative study spaces on campus and around the city

Student news team

Whether you’re in need of a change of scenery, or are struggling to find space in the University Main Library, or AGLC you might want to consider other options for study spaces. Here’s our round up of hidden study space gems across the campus and the city. From independent cafes to atmospheric libraries, there really is something for everyone.

Quiet spots

If you prefer a quieter atmosphere while you work, head to one of Manchester’s scenic libraries. If you haven’t ventured to Central Library yet, it’s a must! Alternatively, for something a little closer to home on days when you’ve slept through your alarm, try either one of the libraries in Didsbury or Withington.

  • Central Library : Monday to Thursday 9am to 8pm, Friday and Saturday 9am to 5pm.
  • Didsbury Library : Monday and Tuesday 9am to 8pm, Thursday to Saturday 9am to 5pm
  • Withington Library : Monday and Wednesday 9am to 8pm, Tuesday 1pm to 8pm, Friday and Saturday 9am to 5pm
  • Fallowfield Library : Monday 1pm to 7pm, Wednesday 2pm to 5pm, Thursday 10am to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 2pm
  • John Rylands Research Institute and Library : Part of the University, but located on Deansgate. The Harry Potter-esque reading room is available for anyone to study in. Open Wednesday – Saturday 9am until 5pm.
  • The Portico library : Established in 1860 this historical library on Mosely Street is open to all Mon-Wed and Fri: 10am until 5pm, Thursday: 10am until 7pm and Saturday 12pm until 4pm
  • You can visit the Manchester Council website to find more library spaces across the city.

The big central spaces definitely aren’t the only study spots on campus! There are countless other options available to students that you may not have even heard of:

  • Art and Archaeology Library , Mansfield Cooper Building – Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm
  • Stopford Library – Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm
  • Whitworth Park and The Whitworth Art Gallery cafe – if you enjoy studying outdoors, visit one of Manchester’s most scenic green spaces. Even from the café, you can feel surrounded by nature as you work. Open Tuesday-Sunday 10-5pm, to 9pm on Thursdays.
  • Alliance Manchester Business School study spaces are open to all students – Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 4pm.
  • MECD (The Engineering Building) has hundreds of great, flexible study spaces and three cafes available for all students. The building is open Monday – Friday 9am to 6pm.

Keep up to date with available study spaces on campus from the Library’s assessment support page.

Cafés around the city

Go and grab a coffee and cake to help boost your study power! Here are just a handful of student favourites around the city:

  • Chapter One Books , Northern Quarter – the large desk areas that hug each wall are perfect for students to work at!
  •   Fuel, Withington – this is the perfect spot for group work and serves up some of the best veggie and vegan food in the city on a student budget!
  • The Pen and Pencil , Norther Quarter- A great relaxed option! There are also plenty of plug points and food is served all day if you get peckish.
  •  North Tea Power – another in the Northern Quarter and a great spot to get stuck into your revision. Great Wi-Fi, comfortable furniture and wide selection of cakes and freshly ground coffee,
  • Foundation Coffee House , various locations – The large open space and fast WiFi is also a bonus.
  • The Art of Tea , Didsbury – the attached bookshop makes this the perfect environment for studying. And just in case you didn’t know, University Green has some great cafés right here on campus, including Bold Street Coffee and Takk as well as the new Starbucks and the Café Nero tucked away in Blackwells.

City spaces

The city doesn’t just have cafe’s to offer! If you’d prefer to study in a quieter environment that doesn’t feel as formal as a library, try one of the following work spaces:

  • HOME ground floor – this study space is often forgotten about by students but is well worth a visit!
  • Manchester Art Gallery cafe and outdoor seating on the Mosley Street terrace – this is the perfect place to work if you fancy having a mooch around the gallery on your study break.
  • Another option if you’re in desperate need of somewhere to go to really focus are paid for shared workspaces such as Colony or Seesaw where you can book a day passes.

Private Study Space

A place to browse, play, sketch, work….

Inspiration can strike anywhere. Some of the best ideas come when lying in bed or taking a walk through the park. But it’s from your desk whilst sat in a comfy chair that these ideas are brought to life.

What’s on the menu?

Cook up a storm, rustle up some grub, set the timer on a ready meal. With a hob, combi oven/microwave, fridge freezer and cupboards the only limit is your imagination (and what you have in).
