Occupational therapy is a rewarding and varied profession. At its core is a concern with how occupation, or the things that people need and want to do, influence health and wellbeing at an individual or societal level. Occupational therapists are committed to working alongside vulnerable and marginalised people and communities, to empower them to achieve health and well-being through meaningful occupations.

From becoming an undergraduate student to on-campus accommodation, we've got you covered. Take a look at the information below to get a feel for all things Salford life.
Campus Life. Big City Buzz.
Study at Salford really is the best of both worlds. Our Peel Park campus is set in 46 square kilometres of lush, green space to enjoy. But we're also just over a mile away from the big city buzz of central Manchester - voted the UK's most liveable city two years running.
Famous for music, culture, sport, art and science, the cities of Manchester and Salford offers an unrivalled student experience where you can balance your studies with world-class culture, exciting events and legendary nightlife.
We know university life isn’t all about studying – sometimes you have to have fun, too – and there are plenty of things to do outside of academia across our campuses.
From joining a club or society, to taking part in a gym class, to meeting up with friends for lunch in Atmosphere bar and café: when you're not working on your next assignment or research project, you can be enjoying the perks of being on campus at the University of Salford.
Living in student accommodation is a great way to get settled into university life and meet new people. We've got some great accommodation options to choose from, including Peel Park Quarter - recently voted one of the best halls of residence in the UK.
