    Rusholme - close to Manchester University [about 4 or 5 miles from Salford, and a *very* awkward commute], so-so for safety... Have been muggings in the past, some break-ins..

    Castle Irwell - Salford University accomodation, so logically much handier for uni. Completely enclosed student village so in terms of safety miles ahead of any private location.

    Don't know Cheetham Hill well enough to comment.

    Rusholme-very cosmopolitan and vibrant, bit dodgy as it's close to Moss Side.

    Castle Irwell- I know it's in Salford but that's all I know.

    Cheetham Hill- Is rough, not a good idea to be a student here.

    Cheetham Hill would be cheapish but its best to avoid if youre not familiar to the area. Safest bet would be to stay at Castle Irwell if you're in your first year.

    Had any thoughts on how you're going to get to Salford every day? It's an awkward route...

    I'm all thrilled to check out curry mile. i have heard alot abt the place.

    I'm a curry man myself I have 23kg extra baggage allowance allowed by British airways & i guess most of that would be utilized by masalas. I ll make spicy curry myself

    the £42 28 day bus pass is your best bet mate. From where you are get on to the main road (wilmslow road) and get on any of the busses, they all go into town. When you get to picadilly gardens go to stop P and get on either the x34, 8, 37 or 36 (plus a few others) and they all go to salford uni

    Give yourself at least 45 minutes to get this done though.

    Thank you that was very clear. I have it saved as a text file. Yeah the bus pass sounds like the best option.
