A Tale of Two Cities

University life isn't just about lectures and labs - the city you live in also shapes how you learn and the person you become.

Salford is part of Greater Manchester, a thriving, diverse city-region in the north-west of England. Our main campus is just 2km from Manchester city centre, so our students get to enjoy the history, culture, bars, and restaurants of two fantastic cities.

Take a tour in the video below - from our university to Manchester city centre and beyond - discovering all the best spots our neighbourhood has to offer along the way.
