Everyday of the week is pretty much a student night in Manchester – the city is all about partying, music, culture and having fun (indoors because you know what the weather gets like). But if you’re studying in Salford and living just outside the city centre, you might fancy something a little closer to home. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best student bars and pubs in Salford for you to enjoy without the hassle of travelling into town.
