UPDATE: Manchester Arena Incident

Tuesday 23 May 2017

Important information regarding last night's events at Manchester Arena

Sam Grogan, Pro-Vice Chancellor Student Experience

All at the University of Salford are shocked and saddened by the events of last night. Our thoughts are with all those involved, their families and their friends. We have provided, and continue to provide, support to all students and staff who have been affected.

We can confirm that Salman Abedi was a student of the University.

In an unrelated incident there was an evacuation of three buildings as a precautionary measure for a short period of time earlier this evening. We have returned to business as usual.

The support of our students is our primary concern. Information and support can be found at askUS.
