University of Salford Manchester

Campus Life

Over the last few years our campus has undergone significant regeneration to offer the best learning spaces for you to develop your skills in your chosen subject area, and to significantly enhance overall student life on campus.

We’re continuing to invest heavily in our campus and facilities, to ensure that you get a great university experience.

Peel Park: Our main campus, Peel Park, is home to many lecture theatres, study spaces, facilities and amenities. Some of the key buildings based here include Maxwell, Chapman, Peel, Lady Hale, Clifford Whitworth Library and University House. The Students’ Union is also based here, alongside our Peel Park Quarter student accommodation and the leisure centre.

The University is also investing £55m in the New Adelphi Building, and will provide exceptional facilities for the arts and media subject areas. The New Adelphi Building is set to open this year, ready for the new intake of students in September 2016.

Peel Park Campus is also home to our £22m Health & Social Care building, Mary Seacole, where our practice clinics, hospital ward facilities and a human performance lab are.

MediaCityUK: The place to be if you’re studying a media based degree. Our MediaCityUK campus opened in 2011 and sits amongst over 80 creative and digital organisations, including the BBC and ITV. The number 50 bus connects our main campus to MediaCityUK, meaning you’ll never be too far from student life over at our Peel Park campus.

Adelphi: The Adelphi campus is currently home to our Arts & Media School. The University is also investing £55m in the New Adelphi Building, and will provide exceptional facilities for the arts and media subject areas. The New Adelphi Building is set to open this year, ready for the new intake of students in September 2016.

Frederick Road: Our £22m Health & Social Care building, based on the Frederick Road campus, is home to practice clinics, hospital ward facilities and a human performance lab. The majority of Health Sciences and Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work & Social Sciences subjects are based here.

Our Students’ Union has a range of great facilities for you to use and events to get involved with, such as our activity groups. There are over 70 student led clubs and societies, and, if you can’t find what you’re looking for – then why not start your own?

In addition to clubs and societies, the Students’ Union plays host to a number of events such as quiz nights, fashion shows and the weekly ‘Funkin Friday’ night in the SU Atmosphere bar.

The Students’ Union also features a café and several convenience stores available at your disposal, so you can restock and replenish your kitchen cupboards with ease!

We also know that sometimes our students need a little helping hand with adjusting to university life, and that’s why the SU has its very own advice and support centre for any academic related issues.

Whatever your needs, our Students’ Union is here to make sure you have only the very best experience at the University of Salford.

So what else is there to do on campus?

Bar Yours: This stylish bar is run by the Students’ Union and features three pool tables, plasma screen TVs and a large projection screen for sports matches – making it a winner for sports enthusiasts! It also hosts regular comedy nights, quizzes and other social events.

Café Yours: An alcohol free Internet café, serving a great range of food and drinks. You can relax, surf, read and chat in a comfortable environment.

Salford Museum and Art Gallery: Located on our main campus, the museum features a programme of exhibitions offering an insight into the history of Salford.

Music and Arts: Events run throughout the year, including art and design exhibitions as well as drama and music performances, showcasing the work of our students and staff as well as professional artists.

Sports Centre: If it’s sport you’re into then the Sports Centre, open 7 days a week, has something for you. Whether you’re looking to make a splash in our five lane 25m pool, or chill out and relax in the spa and sauna, there really is something to suit all tastes, needs and purposes.

The four refurbished air-conditioned gyms in the Sports Centre include a multitude of fitness equipment, including machines with built-in TVs and music systems. Classes such as Boxercise and Yoga are held in the centre, and there are also sports courts, pitches, climbing walls, in situ ropes and more to make the most of.

Sport Events: The Students’ Union runs more than eighty activity groups and sports teams. Many train in the sports centre, play competitively in national leagues and take part in friendly fixtures against other universities.

Some sports groups are open to people of all abilities and play just for fun. The ‘Give Sport a Go’ programme allows you to try out a new sport for free without having to even commit to a particular group.
