The University car parks are likely to be very busy during the day, so where possible we would encourage you to consider public transport options. 

When you arrive, the SEE building (M5 4BR) is in the centre of our campus - number 12 on our map. Follow the red and grey lantern signs and look out for our Student Ambassadors in red tops to help direct you.

Salford Crescent train station is just a five-minute walk from the university and a number of buses run along the Crescent.

There is limited parking available on campus and we would recommend that visitors use Delaney Car Park (M5 4NJ) (near the top of the map, opposite number 14, the University Sports Centre).
