Make an independent visit to Keele

If you are unable to visit on one of our open days or offer holder days, you are welcome to look around the campus on an informal visit and self-guided tour.

The university is an open campus and we welcome both prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students to view the following buildings so you can see some of the facilities and services available to our students:

  • Students' Union
  • Library
  • Sports centre
  • Chancellor's Building, which includes many of the lecture theatres and the university art gallery.

If you would like some refreshments during your visit, you could try Chancellor's Café or Grab and Go in the Chancellor's building or walk down to the Students' Union.

If your visit is during the week, you are welcome to visit academic schools - but we recommend you contact them in advance to see if there is anyone available on the day of your visit. To find out who the point of contact is, please visit the pages of the relevant Faculty and School.

Please note: if you are interested in Medicine at Keele, we request that you try to plan your visit for a Wednesday afternoon. If you wish to visit on a different day, please contact the School of Medicine directly to ensure we can accommodate your visit.

If your visit is at the weekend or on a bank holiday, please note that staff will not be around on the day and you will have more limited access to the university buildings.
