Our location

There are many things that make the University of Salford unique, but our location is one of the things that really sets us apart.

We're based in the vibrant and diverse city of Salford, in the heart of England’s north west – right next to our neighbour, Manchester.

Our main campus, Peel Park, offers the best of both worlds: state-of-the-art learning facilities set against beautiful green space, within twenty minutes’ walk of the centre of Manchester. We’re also the only university with a campus at MediaCity. Its stunning waterfront location at Salford Quays is also home to TV, digital and creative organisations like the BBC and ITV.

When lectures finish, you don’t need to look hard to find exciting culture, sport, shopping, food and nightlife experiences right on your doorstep here in Salford. And when you’re ready to explore Manchester, getting there couldn’t be easier – it’s just a short trip by foot or on public transport.
