Living and Working at Keele
Nestled in 242 hectares of countryside in the heart of the UK, many of our students and a number of our staff live, as well as study and work here: boasting a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Close to rural Cheshire, Shropshire, and Derbyshire, the University is located in an ideal position, less than an hour from Manchester, Birmingham and Chester and within 1.5 hours of London on the train. The historic market town of Newcastle-under-Lyme is Keele’s nearest municipality, surrounded by a number of charming villages and hamlets. The vibrant and multicultural city of Stoke-on-Trent is less than 6 miles away from campus, providing cultural and social entertainment in the midst of its prestigious potteries heritage. In recognition of its engaging cultural scene, Stoke-on-Trent was submitted as one of the nominations for the City of Culture 2021. Within a short distance of campus, there are activities and opportunities to suit all ages and interests. From monkey forests to theme parks, boutique shops to high- street brands, entertainment complexes to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK; our location suits all individuals. For families we can boast some excellent Schools and Colleges in our vicinity, an exceptional hospital and healthcare service and many vibrant sporting and community social opportunities. On campus there is a truly international flavour, as the Keele community is drawn from over 100 countries and a wide variety of cultures.
