Študa is a sprawling settlement south of the main core of Domžale. It lies along the lower reaches of Mlinščica Creek, a tributary of the Kamnik Bistrica. The soil in the area is sandy and the fields to the south are intensely cultivated.
Študa was mentioned in historical sources as Stude in a document from 1205 (in which a witness signed himself as Grifo de Stude).:56
