The Chapman Building will be refurbished as an art lecture theatre cultural activity centre, costing £4.5m.
Broadwalk, the main route through the university, will be realigned and new infrastructure put in such as gas, electric and water services. There will also be new accommodation blocks for students and a hotel and conference centre.
The value of the contract to Appleyard & Trew LLP, which has worked with Salford University before, was not disclosed.
The cost of delivering the overall masterplan, referred to by the university as Arcadis, is put at £575m.
