What you can do

Electric vehicles

To encourage campus users to travel to the University in a sustainable way, we have installed a number of electric vehicle charging points that are available to all staff, students and visitors.

All of our charging units utilise type 2 connectors and are located at:

  • Students Union
  • Sports Centre
  • David Weatherall
  • Home Farm Sustainability Hub (please note only one dedicated parking bay)
  • IC3 (Science Park users only)

See a map of the points here 

The points are currently free to use although we regularly review this and may introduce charging in the future. Please note that you will still be required to Pay & Display or be in possession of a valid university parking permit for all campus car parks.

We do ask that users of charging points are considerate to other users. Please only use if you need to charge and once complete consider moving to a standard space to allow others to use the charger.

If you experience any problems whilst charging please contact the estates department either by emailing estates@keele.ac.uk or by phoning 01782 733137.


Many staff and students cycle from home to Keele University campus. The campus has plenty of cycle racks, and there is plenty of help and support on campus- we even have a free puncture repair kit than you can use!

The Keele Bicycle Users Group can help fellow cyclists with advice on cycling to campus. More information on cycling here.

Staff can take advantage of the Cycle2work scheme to hire a bicycle on a long term basis through contributions made directly from their salary. More information about the Cycle2work scheme here.

Car share

The Keele University Car Share Scheme is currently suspended whilst a review is conducted.
