About The Salford Residence

The Salford Residence, known as Peel Park Quarter, is high-quality accommodation owned by the University of Salford. Located a short distance from the City Football Academy, we arrange for players on our summer programmes to be collected from and dropped off here daily by a private coach.


On our spring programmes, players can expect to stay at a local hotel, twin room. Details about this hotel will be provided once you’ve booked onto a programme.
