The Salford Technical Institute was founded in 1896 to help meet the educational demands of the rapidly growing city. In 1967 it was renamed as The University of Salford and merged with University College Salford in 1996. The university is just 1.5 miles from the city centre and is set among parkland near the River Irwell.
Fallowfield is a large and active student area on the doorstep of the University of Manchester Fallowfield Campus. Along with a large amount of accommodation spanning both halls and houses, the area is also great for sports and nightlife.
Whilst the area is quite a walk from the centre of the city and other university campuses, it is extremely well connected by public transport.
About 2-miles south of the city centre, Rusholme is just north of Fallowfield and a very popular area among students. There are several student halls in the area but also a lot of very affordable terraced houses which represent some of the best value accommodation the inner city has to offer.
Salford is a large borough of the city of Manchester that is situated north of the city centre. It is home to the University of Salford and as such is extremely well connected to the rest of Manchester by both university shuttle buses and public transport in general. It is also connected by train and the Manchester Metrolink.
Perfect for both Manchester students studying on central campuses and student studying on the University of Manchester Fallowfield campus, Victoria Park is a conservation area with a lot of charm.
