Creating exciting new academic space is a crucial part of our vision for a more integrated and vibrant campus.
As part of the transformation of Chapman Square into an active, welcoming hub for students, staff and the local community, we're constructing the New Adelphi Building. The building will provide an aesthetically pleasing welcome for staff and students alighting from Salford Crescent railway station and act as an attractive gateway to the campus. The latest technology and state-of-the-art facilities will also inspire our students to perform at their best. Our investment in this part of the campus represents our commitment to creating an environment that will encourage academic excellence.
The School of Arts & Media will be based at the New Adelphi but there will also be space for other subjects. Facilities will include a theatre, recording and photography studios, café areas, performance and rehearsal spaces, computer suites and lecture theatres. It will achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating in line with the University’s sustainability agenda.
The green space and paved areas in Chapman Square will provide a perfect venue for students and staff to relax and socialise outside the building.
Construction works started in the summer of 2013 and the New Adelphi is now open.
