So, where is Keele?
Based in the heart of the UK, our award winning campus in Staffordshire is near to cities north and south, accessible to Manchester, Birmingham and London. We also have the unique benefits of being close to a city, a vibrant university town and set within over 600-acres of beautiful campus. Our location means there’s plenty to do but also the space to think, a precious commodity in today’s busy lifestyle.
Keele Students' Union (KeeleSU)
KeeleSU is at the heart of campus life. You automatically become a member of KeeleSU when you enrol as a Keele student.
KeeleSU represents and supports students and is the focal point for your social life, providing a fantastic line-up of entertainment, award-winning bars and a full range of services, including food outlets, a print shop and a free advice centre (ASK).
KeeleSU is run by students for students and is governed by five full-time elected officers alongside a permanent, professional staff. They provide as many opportunities as possible for you to make the most of your time at Keele.
As a campus university, we have over 3,000 bedrooms on site, all within a short walk of the centre of campus. We offer affordable, clean and secure accommodation with staff available 24 hours a day to offer support and advice. For offsite accommodation, rents in the local area are amongst the most affordable in the country.
You can apply for accommodation after you have formally accepted your place via UCAS. We recommend that you apply as soon as you receive your invitation e-mail from our Admissions Team.
