"One of the main reasons for going to university is to experience your first steps in adult life. I had some wonderful encounters with people who I believe will remain lifelong friends."

Living in accommodation is a great way for students to get settled into university life, meet new people and immerse themselves in the student experience. At Salford we work with our accommodation partners Campus Living Villages (CLV), who manage two accommodation villages. Prices include all utilities, wi-fi, use of on-site social areas and free on-site gym. You can find full details of our CLV accommodation on their website.

Peel Park Quarter

This is our on-campus accommodation, based on our main campus just a stone’s throw away from lectures and other facilities such as the Sports Centre and Students’ Union. All accommodation here is en-suite and rooms start from £126* per week for Bronze rooms up to £148.50* per week for Diamond  rooms.

John Lester/Eddie Colman

Rooms here are 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 and Eddie Colman Courts start at £87.50* per week for Bronze rooms and go up to £124* per week for Diamond rooms.

* Please note costs above are for 2018. We will update these in due course when accommodation prices for 2019 are confirmed.

Accommodation bookings will open in early 2019, and we will contact all applicants when this happens. Early application is recommended and you do not have to have selected Salford as your firm choice before application. There are accessible rooms available on both sites too. For any queries relating to accommodation with CLV, you can contact the team on

Accommodation applications are made through CLV’s website.

To secure a room at Peel Park Quarter, John Lester or Eddie Colman Court a £200 deposit will need to be paid within seven days of application. A further payment of two weeks’ rent is payable to confirm the room but this is not required until results are confirmed and the applicant knows they are definitely coming to Salford.

The typical contract duration for undergraduate students is 42 weeks and this payment of two weeks’ rent is deducted from the total amount required.

The remaining 40 weeks’ payment is payable in three termly instalments due in October, February and April – these payments fall in line with the maintenance loan release dates.

If your son or daughter does not meet the conditions of their offer and will not be coming to Salford, the deposit will be refunded.

If your son or daughter would prefer to look further afield for their accommodation while at Salford, we recommend Manchester Student Homes 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 at Salford 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 15 minute walk into the city centre.

There is a Metrolink station right outside our MediaCityUK campus building and students  can travel for free via bus between our main and MediaCityUK campuses.

If, for whatever reason, your child has not been able to find a place to live, if they’re having problems with their landlord, their house or anything else accommodation related, our askUS student support team can help.

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.
