"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."Elliott Ames BA Television & Radio
Living in accommodation at Salford is a great way to get settled into university life, helping you to meet new people, explore your new city and become independent.
You’ll also be supported by your Denizen reps – Salford students who live in your halls, who are on hand to help with any issues you might face.
We have two accommodation villages which are managed by our partner, CLV. With a range of room options, you can choose which one suits your budget and needs. Both sites include Wi-Fi, social areas and free on-site gyms.
For more information and bookings, please contact CLV:

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 Coleman
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.
Accommodation applications will open for new students around mid-February and we will email all offer-holders to let them know when they are open.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accommodation applications are made through CLV’s website www.salfordstudentvillage.com.
If your son or daughter would prefer to look further afield for their accommodation while at Salford, we recommend www.manchesterstudenthomes.co.uk 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.
To secure a room 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.
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.
Contact them at askUSemail@example.com.
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.
