Our traditional-style residences offer furnished double or single rooms with common facilities designed for first-year students to enhance their community engagement and ease their transition to university life. Students can enjoy the companionship of roommates and easily connect with their fellow residents through participating in house programs, activities and study groups. Students living in traditional residence will have the convenience of a meal plan that can be used at over 40 food outlets on campus.

Our Keele Campus also offers some suite-style residences which are a preferred option for upper-year students who want to live in smaller groups and share amenities.

Undergraduate residences offer a mixed-gender environment, but some residences have all-female or all-male floors or sections. Smoking (including e-cigarette) is strictly forbidden in all residence buildings. All residence rooms provide wireless and wired Internet access.


Our residences offer a number of safety measures including card access controls, guest sign-in procedures, night porters and Residence Watch Officials. Students also have access to goSafe, a complimentary security escort service for those who don't want to travel across campus alone at night. For more information visit the Security Services website.
