Your campus

If you'll be coming on to campus, be sure to make the most of the services and explore your beautiful surroundings!

Campus security and out of hours services

Keele University’s campus Security operates 24/7 and is here for everyone on campus. You will see our uniformed staff patrolling buildings and halls of residence, and they work closely with other teams across the University to help to keep everyone safe. The team are also trained in first aid and emergency procedures and, during term-time, we also have a student support officer working throughout the evening and night to offer support to students.

If you ever have concerns about anti-social behaviour on campus or in your halls, for example smoking or excessive noise, then you can get in touch with them at any time.

Keele University is located in North Staffordshire, just outside of the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme. The town centre has a wide selection of independent shops and bars, and students can travel slightly further afield to the city centre of Stoke on Trent for more high street names, bars and clubs.

Keele’s central location also provides easy access to Alton Towers, the Peak District, and the city centres of Manchester and Birmingham.
