Peaceful, isolated, small, caring, community-led, supportive

I can produce many adjectives.
What in particular would you like to know?

Yes, the student body is very diverse. However, wandering around campus during covid-19 won't be a good way to gauge that - so you'll just have to take my word for it. :lol:

But there are lots of very active relious and cultural societies which really demonstrate how diverse the community is there.

On campus there is a very overpriced shop, a coffee & book shop, a newsagents/post office and a bank (santander) as well as a catering outlet ran by the University. There is also the Student's Union and Postgrad association (KPA) which are both very welcoming with a good food selection.

Other things are available in the nearest town (Newcastle under Lyme), but that is a bus ride away from campus. Don't cycle or walk, you will die coming back up the hill. So in that sense campus can be a little isolated but there are certainly quite a few things to do up there.

Hi aldiscotcheggs!

Hopefully the replies in this thread will already have given you some idea of what Keele is like but I thought I'd jump in and add my own experiences as well.

I'm a mature student at Keele, currently in the second year of my PhD. I previously completed my MA at Keele and, prior to that, I'd been in the workplace for 11 years. When I came back to Keele, I was really nervous about whether I'd been away from university for too long to study, and about whether I would fit in.

I can honestly say that my time at Keele has been amazing. I've found the academic staff (I'm in the School of English and Creative Writing) to be supportive, with a welcoming and engaged research culture. I've also enjoyed being part of the student community at Keele - there's a really lovely community within both the postgraduate and undergraduate cohorts, and I've made friends from across both groups and who study lots of different courses.

Keele isn't as big or as lively as some universities - you won't get the nightlife you'd get somewhere like Manchester or Liverpool for example. But the SU and the KPA usually have lots going on (obviously this year has been challenging on that score given Covid-19 but both unions have still worked really hard to create social spaces and events for students), plus there's some nice restaurants and bars in nearby Newcastle and the wider surrounding area. We're also very well connected - you can get trains from Stoke to London, Manchester, Liverpool etc.

If you have any specific questions about Keele, please do ask and we'd be happy to help! I'm sure Keele Student Ambassador and Keele Student Ambassador1 may have further experiences to share - and you can also talk to our students via UniBuddy at https://www.keele.ac.uk/study/chat/
