Staffordshire – a great place to live

Staffordshire has something for everyone whether you’re a lover of the great outdoors, a history buff or a thrill seeker. There are plenty of ways to relax or activities to fill your free time and have fun.

The main University campus is in Stoke-on-Trent. Our Stafford campus, home to our Centre of Health Innovation, is situated on Blackheath Lane.


Our main campus is based in Stoke-on-Trent, a diverse and lively city packed full of places to explore, party, shop and dine. If you’re looking to get your adrenaline fix, Stoke-on-Trent is home to Alton Towers and the UK’s No.1 indoor tropical aqua park Waterworld. What’s more, our campus is right next to a main line railway with direct links to London, Manchester and other major cities, perfect for a day out further afield! The best bit? We’re one of the most affordable places to live and study in the UK!

If you’re into hiking, breath-taking views and country pubs – we’ve got that covered too. Why not take a walk around the Trentham Estate and its fantastic selection of independent shops at its retail village? Or if adventure is more your thing, hop on a short bus ride and visit the Peak District, a national park famous for its rivers, valleys, and mountains.


If you’re studying at our Stafford campus, you’re a short walk from the county town of Stafford. Packed with retail opportunities at every turn, Stafford boasts the Queens Retail Park, the Riverside and Waterfront shopping centres, and a vibrant community of independent shops. If culinary delight is on the agenda, look no further, as Stafford also packs a huge range of popular and unique restaurants, bars, and cafés too!

With it’s very own castle, Stafford is a haven of heritage. It’s quaint historic high street harbours an abundance of shops, restaurants, bistros and quaint coffee shops, as well as a great selection of bars. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path, just a short bus ride away you can explore The Shugborough Estate - a beautiful National Trust house and gardens with plenty of events on all year round. For some sailing, scenery or cycling visit Chasewater Innovation Centre, a 90 hectare reservoir with plenty of green open space for you to explore nature.
