BIMM Institute Manchester Facilities

BIMM Institute Manchester puts you right at the centre of Manchester’s music scene. We have two buildings, each equipped with what you need to progress in your subject, expand your skills and launch into the music industry.

There are five study and two reading areas across both sites, communal areas for socialising and collaboration, and a careers hub for entrepreneurial projects.

You’ll also have access to state-of-the-art, loanable facilities. These feature a wide range of professional equipment and music software, including Pro Tools, Logic and Ableton to help you with your projects and studies.

Take a look around our Manchester college and the incredible facilities and state-of-the-art equipment on offer with our BIMM Institute Manchester virtual tour. 

There are four fully kitted out Mac suits and a high-spec range of equipment available to loan across our colleges, including mics, guitars, keyboard, cameras, mobile recording equipment and even DJ decks.

Great Marlborough Street

Study in a fresh 12,000ft-squared facility with superb teaching spaces and a stunning common room. Plus, the city’s biggest music venues are only a stone’s throw away. Not bad neighbours to have, right? 

Bank Chambers

Our Bank Chambers site has two state-of-the-art studios, control rooms and edit suites. With our outstanding facilities, you’ll be taught about production and how to record music to a professional, industry standard. 


Our Great Marlborough Street building has the same interior designer as The Hacienda: Ben Kelly. This iconic music venue inspired Manchester’s music revolution in the 80s and 90s.


Our BIMM Manchester’s Bank Chambers building used to be a bullion bank vault owned by the Bank of England.

Because of our close connection to the industry, you’ll have direct access to fantastic facilities and venues throughout Manchester.

These include:

  • Gorilla and the Manchester Academy for performing
  • Blueprint Studios for writing and recording 
  • The Thirsty Scholar for open jam nights
