We recommend students who are interested in subjects at the MediaCityUK campus and wish to drive to Salford take advantage of our free intercampus bus during the Open Day. You can park for free at our Frederick Road Campus and take the intercampus bus directly to the MediaCityUK campus. Staff and Student Ambassadors will be on hand to direct you once you arrive.

For those wishing to use public transport, the campus is extremely well served, with the following options available:


  • Runs every six minutes in both directions between Manchester Piccadilly and MediaCityUK
  • Only 15 minutes between MediaCityUK and Manchester Piccadilly by tram


  • The CityConnect number 50, operated by Stagecoach, runs every 10-15 minutes from Manchester city centre via the University of Salford’s main Peel Park campus and Salford Shopping Centre, between 7am and 11pm, Monday to Friday, and between 8am and 6pm at the weekend. To find the best journey for you, see Transport for Greater Manchester’s Route Explorer.
  • The X50 runs every 15 minutes from Manchester city centre to the Trafford Centre via Salford Quays. MediaCityUK is just a few minutes’ walk from the Imperial War Museum stop on Trafford Wharf Road, via footbridge over the Manchester Ship Canal.
