M Training can be found at Manchester Science Park, a state-of-the-art campus. We have dedicated training rooms within the Greenheys Building and can use facilities across the campus including the recently-opened Bright Building.
Home to businesses from start-ups to large corporates, Manchester Science Park is a great place to undertake training. Outside your training hours, you can visit the cafe, and spend time in the communal workspace.
We are at Greenheys, Manchester Science Park, Pencroft Way, Manchester, M15 6JJ. (SatNav note: Please use Pencroft Way rather than the postcode).
There is parking at the front of the Greenheys building. Although we try to accommodate as many visitors as possible, visitor parking is limited and subject to availability. Please let us know your registration plate and driver name in advance.
You can park in any parking bay except 50 to 58, and please remember to sign in at reception with your car registration.

Grafton Street Car Park (706 spaces) Grafton St, Manchester, M13 9WG
University of Manchester (963 spaces) Booth St West, Manchester, M15 6PB

Catch buses from Piccadilly Gardens bus station to Greenheys Lane, which is right next to the Greenheys Building. Bus numbers 85, 101, 102, and 103 will take approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on traffic, and depart Piccadilly Gardens regularly.
Alternatively, hop on the 41, 42, 141, 142, or 143 down Oxford Road and walk the 5 minutes through the University of Manchester campus.
