Whether you want to live in University accommodation or privately rented accommodation, there are lots of choices on offer. Staffordshire is an affordable place to live, which is reflected in the rental rates. Staffordshire University Halls are close to lectures, sporting and Students’ Union venues.
“It was a great way to settle into university. I believe it's a place where you have to step outside your comfort zone and learn new things about yourself and living in Halls does just that. Nobody is in their comfort zone, but everybody is in the same boat and wants to make friends and have a good time, it's a great way to meet people and form solid bonds for the three to four years while at Staffordshire” Matt Brighton, Graphic Design.
“The most memorable part of student life so far? For me, it has to be moving into Halls in my first year! Here, I met some of the most lovely people you are ever going to meet and I am pretty sure that I will always stay in contact with them!” Rebecca Crampton - BA (Hons) Sociology with Crime and Deviance in Society.
Our Stoke-on-Trent campus caters for both first year and postgraduate students. You’ll find en-suite accommodation and two types of standard accommodation, traditional corridor-based Halls and student houses. All rooms have free access to the University’s residential internet network. As part of the Stoke-on-Trent campus investment, newly refurbished Halls of Residence with brand new facilities, social spaces and outside areas are being introduced across campus. From USB plugs, instant hot water boilers and Bluetooth kitchen speakers, through to comfy sofas, flat screen televisions and communal external pizza oven – all creature comforts are provided for in the new spaces.
University Halls of Residence costs are based on a 38-week rental agreement. Rent covers all utility bills and free internet access is available in all on-campus accommodation. Students also get Personal Possessions Insurance up to £3,500.
If you prefer to live in private sector accommodation or are studying at a campus without University managed accommodation, Staffordshire University Students' Union has contacts with a network of local landlords, who can offer houses, or rooms within shared houses. All accommodation is inspected by the Students’ Union before becoming accredited.
