Living on the Keele campus gives you the chance to be part of a vibrant student community. If you have any questions that aren't answered here, you can consult our other FAQs or contact us directly.

This will depend on where you live. This information will be specified in your Accommodation Contract. If you need to live on campus at Easter you should NOT  apply for a 34 week let. If you will be a finalist, a 43 week let will ensure you have a room until after the Graduation Ball.

Internet access is available in almost all rooms.

We work hard to make the campus at Keele a safe and secure place to live and study. The 24 hour Security Team assisted by Campus Police help minimise the amount of crime.

The University has a no pet policy. No animals are allowed in the halls of residence as people may be allergic to them and they tend to attract rodents and vermin. Guide dogs are allowed.

All post is sent to the post room on campus. You will be notified by email if you have anything for collection.

Each Hall has secure bike stores provided; in some Halls we ask for a £15 refundable key deposit. In Barnes Hall you will have your Keele Card updated so you can gain access to the bike store. You will need to register your bike details before you can get access to a store. Please see our bicylce storage page to register and for more information.
