University of Salford’s Open Day for new location at MediaCityUK

The University of Salford will be holding an Open Day on Monday 26th April 2010 for their new MediaCityUK location.

The university has taken 103,000sq ft of space in phase one of the MediaCityUK development, and the event will give the public the chance to find out the university’s plans for the new base.

The key features of the event are:

– The university’s plans and key milestones in the run up to launch in September 2011;

– Opportunities to get involved in the project;

– A view of the facilities and activities that will be based at their MCUK campus;

– Opportunity to ask questions and meet with colleagues from within the University.

The event will also include formal presentations.

The university’s new space at MediaCityUK, which they will start using in September 2011, will be equipped with state-of-the-art media technology including TV studios, radio studios, a digital media zone, a ‘living lab’ for projects involving the public, and a digital performance space.

    For interested Office Broker readers, I keep a Salford Quays MediaCityUK Photographic Timeline Journal. This is currently made up of 14, 000 pictures starting from the first digger on site in June 2007 (pictures start in May 2007 when the site was just grassland). The timeline journal is updated weekly with the latest photos. The link below always redirects to the current month. The pictures are split by financial quarter and then month… I am an IT Project Manager in Salford Quays and work only 500 yards from the MediaCityUK site. As such, I am able to keep abreast of the development with ease and post pictures quite frequently. Here is the link, hope it proves useful.
