University of Salford Manchester


Where will I live?

One of the most important decisions you need to make about your life as a student at Salford is where you are going to live. Whether you’re thinking of staying in University accommodation, living off campus or commuting from home, it’s important to consider your options.

There are two University campuses for you to choose from: Eddie Colman & John Lester and Peel Park Quarter.

Eddie Colman & John Lester Courts

These flats are located across the road from Allerton Building and are also the closest halls of residence to MediaCityUK, making it an ideal choice for those studying nursing, healthcare and media related courses. However, being just a short five-minute walk from the main University campus also makes it a popular site for students of all courses.

Facilities include: games room with pool table, multiple social areas, free on-site gym, communal kitchen and library. All-inclusive rates start from £81 per week.

Peel Park Quarter

Peel Park Quarter is the only on campus accommodation and will have everything that the modern student needs and more. Peel Park Quarter houses 1,367 en-suite bedrooms each with a three quarter bed.

Facilities include: games room, multiple social areas, cinema room and a free on-site gym. All-inclusive rates start from £118 per week.

The largest student population in Europe lives in Manchester – so you won’t be short of places to rent if you decide not to live in our University accommodation.

If you wish to make your own arrangements for private accommodation, please visit or call 0161 275 7680 for details of accredited properties in Salford and Manchester.

For those of you thinking of commuting from home, Salford’s campus is easily accessible no matter how you are travelling. We are located a mile and a half from Manchester city centre on a major bus route with services running every few minutes. Salford Crescent train station is situated right in the heart of the campus and we also have car-parking facilities.

For students based at our MediaCityUK campus there is a bus that connects the two campuses and a regular tram service from Manchester Piccadilly to MediaCityUK.
