Keele Residents Association

"Keele Campus Residents Association” exists to help those living in the permanent homes ('staff accommodation'), whether renting or owner-occupiers, to meet, discuss matters of concern, be a mouthpiece, and to help people navigate the organisations that provide our services. Like residents' groups elsewhere, we engage with local councillors, and the borough and parish councils. We also have an institutional landlord (Keele University with Staffs Housing as its agent) which maintains the 'common parts', and buys, sells and rents out property. These 'common parts' include the roads and green spaces, the shops and leisure centre, the energy (for most of us) and water supply. The division of responsibilities differs from that experienced in normal housing so the group also regularly meets with university leadership.

The group meets around 3 or 4 times a year. Much of the correspondence is done through an email group that can be joined at As well as meeting notices and discussion about specific issues, news about community and university events is distributed through this list. These events include those organised by the KPA, residents on campus and the village, and those organised by Keele marketing.
