Vacation opening times

The Easter vacation period is Saturday 28 March - Sunday 19 April 2020. Due to the current coronavirus situation, many on-site facilities are not currently open. Please refer to these web pages for more information.

Please also note that, also due to the above, University staff will also be on an extended Easter holiday from Saturday 4 - Monday 13 April 2020 inclusive. If you try to contact anyone during this period, please be aware that you might not receive a response until Tuesday 14 April.

Please be assured that there will be a limited number of Student Services staff and IT support staff  available throughout the full holiday period.

All events and activities running remotely during the vacation will be in the Keele What's On app.

Following recent government measures and advice from the Vice-Chancellor, there are a number of changes to catering availability on campus during the coronavirus situation.
