Plan your Journey

We would always encourage you to make use of public transport wherever possible. The university is just 2km from Manchester city centre on the A6, is well-served by Salford Crescent train station and has regular bus services both into and out of Manchester.

Train

Salford Crescent train station is located in the middle of our campus, between our Peel Park and Frederick Road sites, making us very easy to get to by rail. Trains from both Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria run through the station regularly, as well as from Manchester Airport, Blackpool, Southport, Wigan, Blackburn, Preston and Huddersfield. The station is fully accessible for wheelchairs, pushchairs and bicycles.

Bus

The Crescent/A6 runs alongside our campus and is a major bus route into and out of Manchester city centre. There are several stops for our campus, so see Transport for Greater Manchester’s Route Explorer to find the best journey for you.

Car

If you are travelling by car, we have a number of car parks across campus, see the campus map for information. Select your campus above to see your recommended car park. Car parking charges are in operation. Payments can be made via the paybyphone app. Further information is available about car parking.

If you feel like stretching your legs and want to get a feel for the area, we’re a 25 minute walk from Manchester city centre. From the Arndale Centre, head across the River Irwell to Chapel Street and take a left…that will bring you past Salford Central train station (on your left), Salford Cathedral (a bit further up on your right) and, about half a mile later, right to our doorstep.
