Choosing the right university is an important decision, so it’s a good idea to come along and take a look round the campus in person.

As well as touring our buildings and seeing what facilities we have on offer, you’ll get the chance to speak to our academic staff and current students, giving you a real feel of what it’s like to study at the University of Salford.

Our Open Days run from 10am – 4pm and are structured to allow you the flexibility to spend as much or as little time as you’d like on campus. There will be talks and tours both in the morning and afternoon across each of our three campuses and you can plan your own schedule by choosing to attend the events and times that suit you.

We’ll have a range of presentations, tours and talks for you to attend.

There will be academic content and the chance to attend talks for different courses. You can take a look around our accommodation and go on a campus tour led by one of our friendly student ambassadors.

Our askUS team will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have on matters such as finance, wellbeing, clubs and societies or sports.

Access to buildings & routes around campus

We have worked closely with DisabledGo to produce an assessment of our campus and facilities.

This work has provided detailed information about our access, and you can find their assessment of our campus and facilities here.

Currently, there are some temporary changes to routes around campus and to entrances to buildings, due to major works. This construction is taking place to improve the campus environment for all student, staff and visitors. Alternative routes and entrances are signposted and should be accessible.

If you find barriers to your access anywhere across campus, either as a result of temporary work or something more permanent, please contact Estates & Property Services on 0161 295 4444 (  or Disability & Learner Support on 0161 295 9000 (

The launch of the app continues our strong commitment to equality and inclusive design – so that our campus can be used by everyone. We have worked with DisabledGo since 2008 to provide trusted accessibility information about our campus.
