How to get here

Our campuses are well connected to local, regional and national transport links. All visitors are encouraged to take advantage of public transport to reduce emissions, and congestion on campus.

The Open Day registration point is in the Catalyst building on our Leek Road site.

If you're travelling by train, you'll need to get off at Stoke-on-Trent railway station and head out of the main doors on platform 1. Cross the road using the pedestrian crossing then turn right, heading past the station car park. The open day registration point is a short walk from here If you need further directions, you can find our student ambassadors at the railway station and on campus. They're easy to spot in their red uniform.

Both our College Road and Leek Road sites have excellent bus links within the city centre and wider area. Open day signage will direct you around the campus and lead you to the registration point.

Our Stoke-on-Trent campus is within easy reach of the M6 motorway, A50 and A34 if you’re travelling by car. To get to the Open Day car parks on Leek Road, use the postcode ST4 2DF. This postcode will take you to our main entrance, where our ambassadors will direct you to the nearest car park. The Catalyst Building, where you will need to register, is a short walk from all of our Leek Road car parks. Parking is free on Open Days.

After coming to Staffs, it feels like my future looks different, very bright in fact.
