Stafford campus

Our Stafford campus is home to the Centre of Excellence in Healthcare Education and Stafford Business Village.

Stafford railway station is in the town centre, about 3 miles from the campus. Please visit  National Rail Enquiries for full travel information and details of timetabled services. You can take a taxi from outside the station for the 10-15 minute trip to campus.

These postcodes will take you to our buildings but not directly to the site entrances. Please note they are for guidance only.


From 1 November 2019, arrangements for visitors and other non-permit holders using Staffordshire University car parks were changed to reduce on-campus congestion. If you intend to drive to and park on one of our car parks regularly, you may wish to consider applying for a parking permit. New and existing students and staff can apply for a parking permit through the CPP portal.

Student and staff permits for the 2019/20 academic year are priced at £15 per quarter and £30 per quarter, respectively. Please bear in mind that students and staff whose term-time postcodes are located within a two-mile radius of the University will not automatically qualify for a permit. Parking permit holders are entitled to look for a vacant parking bay, but are not guaranteed a space on Staffordshire University car parks.

New off-peak tariffs, designed to make parking on campus outside of teaching hours more affordable for non-permit holders and visitors, will also be introduced from the same date.
