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.

University of Salford Student Village logoThere 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.

The largest student population in Europe lives in Manchester so the city offers a variety of types of accommodation at different price levels. The housing market gets very busy in September / October so look and book early if you can, however we strongly advise you not to sign a contract or pay any money until you have visited the property.

If you can visit the city now to secure your accommodation that is recommended; if you will need to look for accommodation when you arrive, try to allow some time before the academic year starts and book a hotel or hostel ahead of time where you can stay while you are looking.

To help you find safe, secure and legal housing the University has a relationship with Manchester Student Homes, they accredits accommodation for students which meets their code of standards, and offers a variety of information and advice services including contract-checking, advice and advocacy and support. Find out more at or call 0161 275 7680.

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.
