Time to explore

University of Salford is located only a mile and a half away from centre of the thriving metropolitan city of Manchester in the north west of England. This key central location allows students the ability to travel with ease throughout the city and beyond with trains taking less than two and a half hours to reach London.

Furthermore, it is the closest university in the city to Old Trafford so students will not have to travel far to catch a world-class game of football or cricket. As a student at Salford you will become part of Europe’s largest student populations and will therefore reap the benefits of a city that is catered with you in mind.
