For some of our students, sport is the backbone of their university experience. Whether you’re representing the University in the weekly British University & College Sports League or keeping your mind and body fit with a casual game of your favourite sport.

University sport takes place at our Stoke campus, however, in Stafford there are indoor and outdoor sporting facilities at the Beacon Sports Centre where you can take out a membership.

You can head into nearby Stafford town centre for a mix of high street and independent shops, eateries, bars, live music venues and theatres.
