Seven steps to a safer campus

The safety and wellbeing of the Keele community - spanning our staff, students, partners and visitors - is our highest priority. To keep our community safe, we will:

  • Adapt our campus and buildings to facilitate social distancing where possible, with clear signage
  • Ask everyone who can to wear a face covering whilst indoors
  • Deliver our educational programmes via a hybrid of online lectures and small group teaching
  • Create small households of no more than eight people in student halls
  • Introduce maximum occupancy levels in staff offices and workspaces, creating seating plans that facilitate social distancing
  • Provide an exciting welcome week centered around safe online events
  • Provide clear guidance on accessing COVID-19 testing

We are fortunate to have a large and self-contained campus complete with shops, amenities, and multiple food and drink outlets, which are all available without having to leave campus.
