Play area under stairs

Hello and thanks all in advance!
Could I move this stud over a bit without risking structural integrity? Seems like it will be okay but just wanted reassurance.

You will be fine---move that stud where you want it---the stud is not supporting the stairs--simply there to hold the drywall.

What Mike said.....

I have a similar area under my stairs....I didn't even put in studs....I'm getting ready to build some pull our drawers.
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
