Open day directions

Our open days are being held at the MediaCityUK campus of our partner, the University of Salford.

This is close to the location of our UTC campus building, and contains studios of a similar industry-standard to those the UTC@MediaCityUK will house. So it’s a perfect place to get a taste for studying with us.

How to get here

MediaCityUK is close to one of the most comprehensive transport infrastructures in the country, so getting here won’t be a problem.

When travelling to MediaCityUK please try to use public transport wherever possible.

Cycling

We have plenty of secure facilities for bikes and cycle-friendly routes that link the surrounding areas to Salford Quays. There are over 300 cycle bays across the MediaCityUK site.

We recommend students and staff cycle in.

Tram

Broadway tram stop, next to The Pie Factory, is opposite UTC@MediaCityUK.

MediaCityUK has its own tram stop, which is just minutes from the main entrance to our campus.

The Metrolink network has frequent services into Eccles, central Manchester and beyond.

Bus

MediaCityUK is served by a number of dedicated bus routes offering journeys to Manchester City Centre, Salford Crescent and other destinations in South Manchester.

The X50 runs from Manchester city centre to the Trafford Centre, via Salford Quays where we’re based. Services are every 15 minutes, Monday to Sunday daytime.

The City Connect 50 links MediaCityUK to Salford and Manchester city centre. Services are every 10 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytime.

The 245 runs from Altrincham and goes via the Trafford Centre on its way here.

You might find this Transport for Greater Manchester bus map useful in planning your journey.

Car

Being a short drive from the Mancunian Way and the M602, we’re easily reached by car.

A new link road with the M602 motorway will give drivers the option to approach MediaCityUK from either end of Broadway. The M602 provides onward linkages to major routes leading in all directions.

Parking on our campus site is limited, but there are plenty of pay and display places nearby.

At MediaCityUK

Once on MediaCityUK, don’t come to the UTC campus, but rather head to the centrally located University of Salford building, which is near the BBC offices.
