Islington Mill Studios


Studio Spaces

Housed in a converted Victorian Mill building, situated between the University of Salford and Manchester City centre, which is a ten minute walk down Chapel Street

Each studio space still possesses a large degree of the character of the building. The walls are whitewashed brick while most of the floors are quarry tiled, with iron columns and vaulted ceilings.

The individual studios have been divided using plasterboard walls and all are completely self contained, lockable and heatable. Each studio is also equipped with a 1 hour fire door with a 5 lever mortice lock.

Each space provides natural light and has at least one larger window around 150cm x 180cm.

The building has a Wi-fi Network which can be accessed from all studios. 

What does the rent include?

  • Electricity,
  • Water
  • Waste removal
  • Wi-fi
  • Buildings Insurance.

Rents are payable monthly on the 1st of each month.

What size are the spaces?

Due to the nature of the building, the majority of the spaces do not come in standard sizes but they roughly split into three main categories.

  • Small  3m x3m
  • Medium 3m x 6m approx
  • Large 6m x6m

Prices start from £135pcm

NB - There are numerous other spaces around the building that can be used for one off events, photoshoots, rehearsals, exhibitions and filming – please enquire directly for more info on these.

What are the contract terms?

The contract is a month by month rolling License agreement. This means that there are no fixed terms and the contract runs indefinitely, offering maximum flexibility as you are not held to a minimum term either.

The only condition is that you give a least one month’s notice of your intended leaving date on or before the 1st of the month that you want to leave in.

In order to take a space at Islington Mill you will need to pay your first month's rent in advance together with one month’s deposit which is held until you leave.

We may ask for proof of identification and address.
