Finding somewhere to live

If you’re moving away from home for the first time to start your studies, you might feel a bit worried about where you’re going to live. Don’t be. Having your own place can be part of the adventure – expect to make friends and learn about fridge politics. Head to our accommodation information for more details. 

If you’ve already booked your accommodation in Peel Park Quarter or Eddie Colman/John Lester Courts, you’ll be hearing from Campus Living Villages separately about moving in dates and anything else you need to know.

Welcome week

When you enrol you’ll be given more details on your induction and teaching timetable, which will be dependent on your course. The college will contact you separately about enrolling at University Centre, Future Skills, Dakota Avenue, Salford M50 2PU.
