How to find us

Check-in location

When you arrive on campus, please head to our check-in point which will be set up inside a gazebo in Chapman square on our Peel Park campus. This is located near Chapman building (number 11 on the campus map). When you arrive, have your QR code ready and the team will check you in, provide you with a copy of the guide and point you in the right direction.

Please note all of the Visit Day activities will take place on our Peel Park campus, however you will have the opportunity to do a campus tour of our Frederick Road and MediaCity campuses during the day.  

How to find us/Where to park

If you’re joining us by car, we’ll have free parking available for you in either our Irwell Place car park (postcode M5 4PE) or our Lowry and Delaney car parks (use postcode M5 4NJ). All are just a short walk from where you need to check-in and you can locate these on the campus map. There is no need to pay-and-display or pay via the app, it’s free for your visit. Please note the museum car park does not belong to the university so is not free to use. 

We also have Salford Crescent train station and several bus stops on campus. For more info on how to find us, have a look at our travel page.

Will there be other opportunities to visit the campus?

If you are unable to join us at the Visit Day, you are welcome to book on to a campus tour so you can come and take a look around the campus. This will be a general tour of the campus but unfortunately there will not be any course tutors available on these dates. 

Head to our Clearing Offer Holder Hub to book your place and find out more information on what happens between now and when you start.

Do you have support for students with a disability?

You can let us know about your access requirements when you book onto our Visit Days. We’ll then work with you to do everything we can to support you. You will also be able to have a one-to-one appointment with our disability and wellbeing team on the day. 

If you would like to check our campus for its accessibility, we have worked closely with AccessAble (the leading provider of access information for disabled people in the UK) to produce an assessment of our campus and facilities. This work has provided detailed information about our access; find out more about their assessment of our campus and facilities.
