Student Accommodation in Salford

Written by Sam | January 6, 2021

Salford is Manchester and is a suburb of Manchester, however, it has its own university, the University of Salford.

The University of Salford is a unique university because it has access to the media city and has become a leading university in that area. This is because the BBC has moved to Salford and the university can utilise the BBC to help it’s undergraduates. Not many universities have this type of access or courses.

Because it is located close to Manchester you can choose to stay in Salford or venture down the road into Manchester where there are two other universities, The University of Manchester & Manchester Metropolitan and go along to all the events in Manchester.

Manchester has a big student presence, is great for graduates and there is always something to do whether it is a coffee, cinema, food or pub.

If you want to read more about Salford as an area, this will help you, and if you want to read more of the statistics, what the University is known for, and other useful bits of information, this will help you.

Private Student Accommodation in Salford

The student accommodation is all close to the university and is within walking distance. This means it is in a good location, however, the student accommodation you want for Salford is going to be different than the accommodation you want for either of the Manchester Universities, this is because they all have their own collection of student accommodation and you won’t be fighting for accommodation.

At the minute we are just looking at the purpose-built blocks of student accommodation (PBSA) and not the houses.

For Salford university it actually have quite a lot of student accommodation, when you add in the student housing element, there is more than enough for students.

  • Service – are they good with students and how have they reacted to COVID

Some of the providers that I like and are doing a good job are:

  • Know what you want from the house – location, price, room size etc.
