Investing in Salford

We have embarked on a major programme of investment to create a new forward-looking university in Salford. These developments are a reflection of our continuing confidence in Salford and our commitment to the regeneration of the city.

Our plans aims to:

  • revive and regenerate our campus environment
  • ensure that Salford’s young people will see their local university as their higher education destination of choice
  • provide a safe, vibrant, sustainable and accessible place for our students and staff to live, work and study
  • create an environment that can be shared by the people of Salford and the University help to create a distinctive new part of the city

With a turnover of some £180.5m, we take our responsibility towards the city of Salford very seriously. The University is one of the area’s biggest employers and makes a significant contribution to the local economy.
