Academic facilities

Students in a lecture theatre

We have a long history of providing people with the tools they need to succeed, and we've got ambitious plans for the future as our campus continues to evolve and grow. In the next three years the University will be investing over £100 million in buildings, facilities and industry standard equipment. These include a new Science and Engineering building, a new Energy House facility and investment in our teaching facilities.

The School of Arts and Media offers a range of industry standard facilities across our MediaCity and New Adelphi sites.

MediaCity is at the heart of the UK's media and digital industries. Our students and researchers have access to a range of facilities including: state-of-the-art TV and radio studios, craft edit suites, audio production suites and a journalism centre.

Salford Business School

Salford Business School is located at the heart of the University’s Peel Park campus. Teaching facilities include Lady Hale and Chapman buildings, which offer stylish modern spaces with lecture theatres equipped with the very latest technology and large screen displays. Lady Hale is also the home for the mock courtroom where the mooting team hone their skills in case presentation and debate. Throughout campus, there is a choice of individual study areas as well as communal learning and breakout spaces for group working. And don't forget to check out the library; it'll be an important place for you.
