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.

Can I bring family and friends?

Of course! Choosing a university is a big decision, so we'd absolutely encourage anyone who is supporting you to get involved and join you. 

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.
