Destination Stoke

Discover what our Stoke-on-Trent Campus has to offer.

Student Life in Stoke-on-Trent

Studying at our main campus in Stoke-on-Trent offers everything you could need from a modern and traditional student experience. Our edge-of-city campus is in the perfect location - just a short walk into the City Centre, which has access to shops, supermarkets, bars, and eateries for every taste and budget. Or, if the countryside is more your thing – our campus is just a bus ride away from the Peak District national park, a great place to explore, unwind, or even go on your very own adventure. With a blend of heritage, local attractions, and vibrant culture, whatever you want from your experience outside of our University, you'll find it. 

Not only does our location in the UK mean that we’re an accessible and commutable institution, it means that the large cities of Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool are just an hour away from your doorstep via train – which happens to be directly opposite our campus! 


When it comes to our vision for a city campus, we want you to be well connected. And that’s exactly what you’ll be – thanks to vibrant and dynamic teaching and learning facilities, convenient public transport links and incredible social areas. 

Over recent years, we’ve invested over £140 million in developing our campus. Our latest addition is our brand-new £40m Catalyst Building, an 8,800 sqm, digitally enabled building dedicated to teaching, student employability and business, and as a future student of Staffordshire University, you could be among the first to take advantage of everything it has to offer.  

There’s more, we are dedicated to staying ahead of the game with our facilities, so much so that you’ll often find networking opportunities with real industry while you’re studying with us. Our Stoke-on-Trent campus includes areas like:  

The Science Centre 

A £30m building packed with fully equipped laboratories, innovative lecture theatres and social spaces.  

The Smart Zone  

Our two-storey designer-maker facility that is houses over £1.3m worth of digital technology, high-end computing facilities and unique engineering and milling equipment. 

Cadman Studios  

The home of production, we’ve invested over £11m in the latest audio and visual technology, with green screen and motion capture suites for next-generation learning. 

Esports Hub 

Don’t just stay ahead of the game, become it in our Esports hub – a space packed with high end gaming facilities, broadcasting equipment and professional standard lighting.  

The Beacon Building  

Our Beacon building is a futuristic £5.5m teaching facility, with a built-in bistro where you grab a bite to eat!   

Crime Scene House  

Simulate a future in forensic and investigation in our dedicated simulation house, packed with integrated CCTV, and a few other surprises! 


Following a £1.25 million investment Our Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre is home to some of the best sports and exercise equipment in the city. You can get up close with a range of facilities powered by industry leader, Matrix Fitness. These include exercise studios and changing rooms, plus cutting-edge kit, from cardio to free weights.  


If all that wasn’t enough, our standard halls of residence are packed with everything from USB plugs to instant hot water boilers, outdoor pizza ovens, Bluetooth kitchen speakers and extra comfy sofas.
