The School of Geography, Geology and the Environment facilities

Our research and teaching facilities include world-class laboratories, an extensive range of analytical instruments and our unique living lab.

The William Smith building is situated towards the centre of campus, and is occupied solely by the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment. All of the laboratories in the William Smith building have been refurbished over the past few years to provide up-to-date teaching facilities. The majority of our undergraduate and postgraduate classes, and research facilities are located within or nearby to the William Smith Building, including a state of the art dedicated teaching floor in the new Central Science Laboratories (CSL), and the Keele University Ice Laboratory (IceLab) - a laboratory that provides dedicated high-precision water isotope and fluorescence spectrometry.

Science laboratories

Geography, Geology and Environment benefits from its very own dedicated teaching space in the new state-of-the-art Central Science Laboratory (CSL). Featuring 80 new polarising microscopes and 20 new low powered microscopes, the CSL allows us to innovate and enhance the teaching experience of our students, and supports a highly tailored approach to practical learning.
