NTC, the 'hidden gem' of Didsbury, is a leafy patch of solitude in the bustling heart of South Manchester. The College facilities are a superb combination of purpose-built and sensitively adapted buildings which offer an ideal environment for study, and a fine setting for a retreat or conference.
The College is set in five acres of ground, including one of the finest private woodlands in the city. The large back lawns, overlooking golf courses which spread down to the Mersey valley, provide space to read and reflect, and in summer often accommodate wedding marquees or gazebos.
The White House, a listed building in arts-and-craft style, accommodates faculty and administrative offices, and the college's main conference rooms.
Hurlet Hall, the main student residence, has high-quality en-suite study-bedrooms (with wireless Internet-access), equipped with self-catering kitchens and common space. It also houses a limited number of married student loft apartments. College worship centres on the J B Maclagan Chapel, whilst the cafe area, with its leather sofas and bistro tables, provides a meeting space for students and faculty alike.
The Emmanuel Centre (dedicated in 2005) provides an exceptional range of academic facilities: it houses the main library (30,000 volumes) on the ground floor, a suite of smartboard-equipped classrooms and seminar rooms on upper floors, and a postgraduate student study area, providing superb learning space for a growing student body.
Connected to the Library is Dene House, which houses the periodicals reading room, the College archives, the Chaplaincy, and the Manchester Wesley Research Centre.
