Manchester Academy 1 is part of a group of gig venues at Manchester University Students Union along with Academy 2, Academy 3 and Club Academy.

Academy 1 is a separate building to the south/left of the Students Union building and has a capacity of approximately 2300. It has recently been refurbished with new toilets and better disabled access. There is one bar in the foyer, and one inside the auditorium.

There is a large, cheap and recently refurbished student bar open to gig goers on the ground floor of the main SU building next to the Academy 1, this is often only open to people with tickets on the night of a gig.

Many gigs are moved between venues if they are more or less popular than the promoters anticipated, so don’t be surprised if your gig is in a different venue when you arrive. This doesn’t really matter as the venues are all next to each other.
