Stafford could lose thousands of students under a major review which could see Staffordshire University close its campus in the town.
Staff at the University have been asked for their views on two main options for its future.
The first, keeping two campuses. Or, the second, moving everything to Stoke.
Jeremy Lefroy, Stafford MP, has pledged to fight "tooth and nail" to keep the campus in Stafford.
The recession, higher tuition fees and government demands have all been blamed for the review.
The University's Vice Chancellor, Michael Gunn, told staff that investment was available but it was not unlimited.
