The unique city of Salford forms a key Metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester.
Noted for the lack of any identifiable city centre, the region stretches to include a population of 218,000 residents, made up of the towns of Eccles, Swinton and Pendlebury, Walkden and Irlam. Despite the wealth of educational facilities offered across Manchester, Salford plays host to its own British Public Research University; with approximately 20,000 registered students taking part in a broad range of academic studies at Salford University each year.
Broken down into three teaching colleges, Salford University offers courses covering Arts and Social Sciences, Health and Social Care, and Science and Technology. Such wide ranging opportunities are typical of the Salford area, with its nightlife expanding into the Greater Manchester region and providing local students with fantastic options at every turn.
While Salford itself may be heavily focussed upon providing a pint at the local pub, easy access to central Manchester ensures that there are more than enough all night clubbing experiences, trendy bars and must-see events to ensure that your studious stay is an unforgettable one.
Once the barrels run dry at the likes of The Salford Crescent and The Old Pint Pot, cheap train and bus services make access to the many Manchester student nights an affordable option for expanding the nightlife in Salford.
Of course, Salford is not without a touch of culture. Whether experiencing the historic Tudor majesty of the Lottery funded Ordsall Hall, enjoying the cultural feast offered by the exhaustive facilities available at The Quays, or soaking in the hard hitting action of the Sale Sharks at Salford City Stadium, you will never be short of options during your academic stay.
Salford cuisine ranges between affordable student discounted fast foods and the Champagne cocktail toasts found at the wonderfully ornate Lowry Hotel. Of course, with so many pubs in the area, you can be assured of the finest Sunday roasts; so your Manchester migraine can always be subdued after a heavy night out in Salford.
As such a popular region of the country, Salford Student Accommodation is always in hot demand. Fortunately, we have a list of the very best Salford student halls to make your University experience one of the most unforgettable times of your life…
