Salford to refresh campus masterplan

Salford University is planning to draw up fresh visions for its long-term campus development in conjunction with the local authority.

The university is currently inviting bids from urban masterplanners for a £250,000 contract to last six months to update the visions for the main campus, Crescent and Adelphi neighbourhoods.

A University of Salford spokesman said: “As the University celebrates its 50th anniversary, we want to look forwards and make sure we’re able to create a campus fit for the students who will be attracted to study with us in future decades. This will include planned investment in digital learning which will enable large numbers of students from around the world to study remotely.

“We’re also working closely with Salford City Council to make sure our campus develops in a way that fits in with the developments set to take place around us, as the surrounding city of Salford grows over the next few years.

“Salford’s City Mayor and the University’s Vice Chancellor have a shared vision to improve urban life qualities for students and residents, to encourage local innovation and good design and enable social and cultural transformation.”

The deadline for expressions of interest is 5pm on 17 March.
