We know that coming to university can be a daunting as well as an exciting experience, but there is no need to worry. We have a range of support services that are tailored to your needs and with services on each campus site, the answer should only be a short walk away.
Your first weeks at Salford
With all the events and activities we hold during Student Welcome week, your first few days are guaranteed to be some of the most memorable of your time with us.
You’ll get lots of opportunities to meet new people and get a taste of some of the clubs and societies on offer.
Where can I get help?
From the start, you’ll be assigned a personal tutor to provide regular advice and guidance on your academic studies. Or if you need any advice about loans and bursaries, health and welfare issues or any other aspects of student life while you are at Salford, our Student Life advisors are there to help.
We’re here to support you throughout your studies. Our specialist Disability Advisors can make sure you have the assistance you need in lectures and exams, provide equipment loans and help you apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA) funding.
Disabled students make up over 10% of Salford students, and we’re proud to offer an accessible and inclusive service. Find out more about our Disability Support.
The University has its own nursery run by Busy Bees Childcare on campus. Places are available for children from six months to four years of age and can be booked by sessions (min one half day) or full-time basis.
If you are looking for job opportunities we have a Careers & Employability team who can assist you in gaining employment. While studying here you might want to be employed as one of our student ambassadors
Plus we’ll continue to support you even after you leave
When you graduate you become part of a global community of University of Salford graduates – our alumni- and you’ll have access to a whole range of support.
