Our Campus

Everything’s on your doorstep at Keele, with all the most important services and facilities gathered together at the centre of campus. And because our student population is quite small, there’s a great sense of community.

You’ll soon feel at home, and you’ll make and meet friends wherever you go.


Our self-contained campus is home to our accommodation, lots of restaurants and cafés, the Students’ Union, a health centre, all the teaching (except for some health courses) and the following:


Besides our three campus shops and fantastic Students’ Union shop and post office, Keele has a small high street with a newsagent’s, a Costa Coffee, a Blackwell’s bookshop, a Well Pharmacy and a Santander bank.

Every day, different traders sell their wares inside and outside the Students’ Union – great for DVDs, CDs, books, posters, make-up, crafts and more.

Once a week there’s a farmers’ market outside the Students’ Union where you can buy fresh produce. Or take one of our student allotments and grow your own!


We have two libraries: one on campus, open 24/7 during semesters, and the other at the Royal Stoke University Hospital for our healthcare students. Both offer free Wi-Fi and a choice of study spaces.

We offer an IT support and advice centre plus a laptop loan scheme and clinic. You’ll have 24/7 access to computers, scanners and high-speed colour printers in the Library. There’s free Wi-Fi across campus, including every study bedroom, and at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. The Keele Learning Environment (KLE) provides an online portal for enhanced course content, submitting your work online, and group study facilities like chat rooms and messaging.


Our interdenominational chapel provides a focus for different styles of Christian worship. The Islamic Centre offers space for Muslim worship, and we have rooms on campus with a kosher kitchen. The chaplaincy service will be happy to help students of all faiths and none.


The KeeleSU radio station, KUBE Radio, is run by students for students, broadcasting 24/7 during semesters. Listen to the shows or get involved!


Our large, purpose-built nursery is at the heart of campus. It is registered with Social Services and Ofsted.


Check out our Students’ Union or what goes on at night at Keele. Our SU was voted 4th best students’ union in the UK for nightlife by which?, who said: “Expect star-studded events at Keele.” So you don’t need us to tell you how good it is!

Keele has fabulous indoor and outdoor sporting and leisure facilities, with more to do than you could shake a lacrosse stick at. From fencing to dance, football to squash, you’ll be able to exercise your body just as much as your mind. There are over 100 sports clubs and societies to choose from!

All work and no play make Jack and Jane rather dull, so students can make the most of a rich and varied arts programme. There are exhibitions, music, poetry, performances and much more throughout the year.

The University's arboretum boasts one of the largest collections of flowering cherry trees in the country.
