Accommodation

One of the most important decisions you’ll make about your life as a Salford student is where you’re going to live.

Accommodation at Salford is managed by our accommodation partners, Campus Living Villages (CLV) and we have two accommodation villages.

Peel Park Quarter accommodation

Peel Park Quarter (PPQ) is our on-campus accommodation, based on our main campus just a stone’s throw away from lectures and other university facilities. All accommodation at PPQ is ensuite and rooms start from £126 per week for Bronze rooms up to £148.50 per week for Diamond rooms.

John Lester/Eddie Colman Court accommodation

These are based around a ten minute walk from our Frederick Road campus and are the closest halls of residence to our MediaCityUK campus. Prices for John Lester/Eddie Colman court start at £87.50 per week for Bronze rooms and go up to £124 per week for Diamond specification.

How to apply

Applications for both sites are made through the CLV website and you will require a £200 deposit to secure your room. If you have any queries about your application, you can contact CLV directly on salford@clvuk.com. The rooms here are popular and fill up quickly, so we'd recommend you book your place early. You'll need your student ID to make an application, which you can find at the bottom of any emails you've received from us.

If you’d prefer to look off campus for your accommodation while at Salford, our recommendation is that you visit www.manchesterstudenthomes who offer free house-hunting advice. They only work with fully accredited landlords and will help to keep tenants informed about their rights during their tenancy. There are a number of accredited accommodation choices within close proximity to the University.

We’re ideally placed for public transport links, with Salford Crescent train station right on campus. There are regular bus routes along the Crescent into Manchester and it’s only a 20 minute walk into the city centre.

There's a Metrolink tram stop right outside our MediaCityUK campus building, and students can use their Salford ID cards to travel for free on the 50 bus between main campus and MediaCityUK.

If, for whatever reason, you have not been able to find a place to live, or if you’re having problems with your landlord, your house or anything else accommodation related, our askUS student support team can help. They can be contacted on askUS-accommodation@salford.ac.uk.

The University does not directly manage any accommodation and we can’t always resolve issues but we may be able to help in different ways and provide advice.

If you are either a care leaver or estranged from your family, are 25 or under and will be studying at the University of Salford from September 2018, you can apply for free year-round student accommodation at university from the Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme.

No rent, no bills, 365 days a year for up to 3 years.  

The scholarship takes care of a place for you to live whilst you’re at university. Scholarships are awarded to students with a wide range of backgrounds and academic grades.  Unite will help you settle in, keep in touch with you and offer you extra opportunities for enjoyment or employment throughout your studies.
