You won't be spending every waking moment of your university life in lectures, labs and late-night study sessions; there's loads to do on campus during your free time.
Here are just a few highlights...
The Patient Simulation Suites in Mary Seacole building replicate a real hospital, allowing students on Nursing and Midwifery courses to learn vital skills in an environment that's as close to the real thing as possible. The suites feature lifelike manikins that can breath, speak and have a heartbeat! The VR space can also recreate a variety of settings, from the back of an ambulance to a snowstorm.
Once you register at the University of Salford, you’ll automatically become a member of Salford Student Union. The SU is run by and for students, independently of the University, to help you love your life at Salford.

Our main campus sits right next to Peel Park, one of the oldest public parks in the country. Having recently undergone a £2.5 million restoration to bring it back to its former glory, the park provides a beautiful green space to relax outside of lessons.
Clifford Whitworth library is our main library, which has recently undergone a £6.2m refurbishment to bring you 'the library in the park', inspired by the historic Peel Park which runs alongside the building. The library is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, offering group study spaces, PCs, Macs and laptop loans. Our dedicated library support staff also offer a range study skills sessions.

Our £3m 'megalab' - named after Sir Walter Bodmer, one of the proposers of the Human Genome Project which mapped three billion pairs of human DNA - is our world-class facility for the School of Environment and Life Sciences. The labs feature an AV system that allows lecturers to be linked audibly and visually through the series of interconnected labs, meaning you can see and hear them wherever you are.
