University of Salford Facts

  • The University of Salford is located less than two miles from the city centre of Manchester in North West England.
  • The university can be traced back to two institutions that emerged during the industrial revolution of the 19th century: the Pendleton Mechanics Institute and the Salford Working Men’s College – both of which were founded in the 1850s to cater for the demand for industrial skills.
  • These two institutions became the Royal Technical Institute, Salford, just before the turn of the last century, which in turn became the Royal Technical College, Salford, in the 1920s.
  • After splitting again in 1958, two separate institutions developed, known as University College Salford and the University of Salford (this name was used for the first time in 1967). In 1996, the two merged again under the University of Salford name.
