University of Salford Manchester

Public spaces

We want to enrich the campus environment by creating a landscape that is both appealing and functional – a high-quality design that will welcome visitors to the University and invite them to take a stroll through the campus or just sit and watch the world go by.

It is our vision to offer a more centralised and better-connected campus, which also focuses on our outside space and the way it is used.

It is vital to us that people can feel safe and comfortable in their surroundings. We envisage a series of uncluttered open spaces that are linked by a 'central access route'.

These spaces will fulfil a variety of roles – outdoor lecture theatres, performance areas or quieter external meeting places where people can come together to share ideas in a more informal setting.

Improving the external appearance of the campus will also enhance the local community, encouraging a feeling of pride in Salford and the surrounding areas.
