Peel Park: Our main campus, Peel Park, is home to many lecture theatres, study spaces, facilities and amenities. Some of the key buildings based here include Maxwell, Chapman, Peel, Lady Hale, Clifford Whitworth Library and University House. The Students’ Union is also based here, alongside our Peel Park Quarter student accommodation and the leisure centre.
MediaCityUK: The place to be if you’re studying a media based degree. Our MediaCityUK campus opened in 2011 and sits amongst over 80 creative and digital organisations, including the BBC and ITV. The number 50 bus connects our main campus to MediaCityUK, meaning you’ll never be too far from student life over at our Peel Park campus.
Adelphi: The Adelphi campus is currently home to our Arts & Media School. The University is also investing £55m in the New Adelphi Building, and will provide exceptional facilities for the arts and media subject areas. The New Adelphi Building is set to open this year, ready for the new intake of students in September 2016.

We’ve built a brand new student accommodation located in the centre of the main campus which overlooks Peel Park creating an exciting base for student living.
Peel Park Quarter houses a total of 1,367 bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Each apartment has its own kitchen and lounge space. Residents benefit from communal areas including a cinema room, gym, TV and games room, group study lounges and a launderette.
The additional students living onsite creates a 24-hour campus with shops, cafés and somewhere for the local community to visit.
In line with the University’s commitment to the environment, the accommodation is sustainable and energy-efficient with a target of achieving an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.
