Student Life in Salford
With two cities on your doorstep, you’ll never be short of things to do or places to go whilst you’re studying at Salford. They’re located just minutes from the cosmopolitan Manchester city centre and part of one of Europe’s largest student populations – and all the nightlife and culture that comes with it. Manchester is one of the most exciting and largest student cities in Europe, having undergone significant regeneration over the last few years.
From music to football, shopping to art culture, there are so many different activities and experiences to get involved with, right in the heart of both Manchester and Salford. Manchester is often regarded as the football capital of the UK, so getting down to Old Trafford to watch a game is a must. If music's your thing, there are tonnes of ways to explore Manchester’s music scene, with numerous bars and clubs and live music venues such as Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Arena hosting gigs and concerts throughout the year. From our University, it takes approximately 10 minutes on the train from Salford Crescent to Manchester city centre, so you’ll never be far from all that Manchester has to offer to our students.
Salford has excellent transport links, which makes it easy to get to the University from anywhere in the UK or overseas. They have their own train station, Salford Crescent, which provides a quick route into Manchester city centre and to Manchester international airport. Manchester City Centre is only a 20 minute walk from the university, or 10 minutes by train. London is also only a two hour train ride away and Manchester Airport is a 30 minute drive.

We do outreach to schools to get students involved in engineering and meet once a month.
