The village is home to the University of Salford students only, and is conveniently located with the Frederick Road campus on your doorstep and the main Peel Park campus and its facilities just a 15 minute walk away. 

There’s a host of different room types to choose from at a range of prices. We have flats that are specifically suited to first-year students, and others which are more popular with returning students and post-graduates who are looking for a more relaxed atmosphere.  

On-site you’ll have access to common rooms, a communal kitchen, quiet study spaces, as well as laundry facilities and a free on-site gym which is exclusively for the use of residents.  

Conveniently located just a five-minute walk from Salford Shopping Centre, so you have easy access to supermarkets, retail shops and restaurants. Getting around Salford and into Manchester also couldn’t be easier. There are regular and direct buses, or you can walk into the city’s centre in 30 minutes. University of Salford students studying at MediaCityUK (Salford Quays) can take advantage of free travel on the dedicated bus service which runs past the village, straight down to MediaCityUK. 

The village is popular with nursing students, thanks to it's close location to Salford Royal Hospital which is just a ten-minute drive away.
