Schedule and Information - 7 February 2018

"Ask a lot of questions..."

"Staff and student ambassadors were very accommodating and went into a lot of detail in explaining the courses. They also allowed you to ask a lot of questions."

Your Applicant Visit Day is almost here! We’re looking forward to seeing you.

We’ve put this page together to give you a bit more information about the day but if you feel like we’ve missed anything, feel free to get in touch on 0161 295 4545, or @salforduni.

You’ll have seen the overall schedule for the day when you booked as well as in your confirmation email but we’ve also included it below if you’d like to have another look at it. Any optional sessions you’ve booked onto in the morning are confirmed in your booking confirmation  email but we’ll send them again a few days before your visit.

During the lunch break, we’ll be providing lunch for you and your guests – including halal and vegetarian options. Or, if you fancy finding something for yourself, our Students’ Union run kitchen and bar – Atmosphere – is located in the same building and has a full menu  of pizzas, burgers, salads, wraps and more.

Throughout the day we’ll take you from place to place depending on which sessions you’ve booked to attend. You won’t need to find anywhere or anything yourselves, but you’ll find a map in the Applicant Visit Day guide to help you get a feel for the campus. We’ll be based  in University House for the morning sessions and we’ll then take you to your afternoon locations which will depend on your chosen course. You can download the Applicant Visit Day Guide here and we’ve put together a guide for Parents and Carers too. Scroll  down to find your Course Schedule to complete your day!

Location and Parking


If you are attending any of the optional sessions in the morning, you'll need to visit University House - building number 11 on our campus map - for check-in and refreshments.

If you are coming only for the Welcome talk and afternoon course sessions starting at 1:30pm, please come straight to Chapman Building, building number 10 on the campus map.

How to find us?

The University is just 2km from Manchester city centre on the A6 and is well-served by Salford Crescent train station – located right on campus – and regular bus services both into and out of Manchester.

While we do have on-campus parking, we’d recommend you use public transport where possible as parking does become quite limited during term time. If you do choose to drive, be sure to read the  Parking section below as we’ll be running a free park-and-ride on the day.

More information on how to find the University.


We have multiple pay-by-app car parks on campus but for our Applicant Visit Day visitors will be running a free park-and-ride shuttle from Centenary car park on Peru Street (use post code M3 6EQ).

These shuttles will be starting at 8:45am and are running every 8-10 minutes throughout the morning, with the last one leaving Centenary car park at 1.30pm. at the end of the day the shuttles will restart at 3:30pm from the main campus and the final bus will leave main campus at 5:30pm.

We’d strongly recommend you use this as parking can become very limited on campus during teaching weeks. However, please ensure you arrive at least 20 minutes before your first session is scheduled to start to allow for transport to University House.
