Keele University, officially known as the University of Keele, is a publicresearch university in Keele, approximately 3 miles from Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England. Keele was granted university status by Royal Charter in 1962 and was founded in 1949 as the University College of North Staffordshire.

Keele occupies a 625-acre (250 ha) rural campus close to the village of Keele and consists of extensive woods, lakes and Keele Hall set in Staffordshire Potteries. It has a science parkand a conference centre, making it the largest campus university in the UK.[6] The university’s School of Medicine operates the clinical part of its courses from a separate campus at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. The School of Nursing and Midwifery practice is based at the nearby Clinical Education Centre.

The university’s curriculum required every student to study two principal subjects to honours level, as well as further subsidiary subjects, with an additional requirement that students should study at least one subject from each of the subject groupings of Arts, Sciences and Social Sciences. The cross-disciplinary requirement was reinforced by the Foundation Year, an innovation which meant that for the first year of the four-year programmes, all students would study a common course of interdisciplinary “foundation studies”. This key particularity of the Keele curriculum led Michael Brawne to remark in 1966 that the university was “the nearest thing in Britain to the small liberal arts college in the US”.

Standard three-year degrees were introduced in 1973 and the numbers of students following the Foundation Year course have steadily dwindled since. The Foundation Year has never been formally discontinued, however, and remains an option for prospective students who qualify for entry into higher education, but lack subject-specific qualifications for specific degree programmes.[70] By contrast, almost 90 per cent of current undergraduates read dual honours. Able to combine any two available subjects, students have a choice of over 500 degree courses in all.The university also offers a study abroad semester to most of its students.

Keele University Students’ Union organises social activities throughout the year. The principal Students’ Union building was designed by Stillman & Eastwick-Field (now part of the T. P. Bennett practice), with some guidance from the University’s architect, J. A. Pickavance. It opened in 1962 and was complet in 1963, extended in the 1970s and the ground-floor interior remodelled in 2011–2012. Its magazine, Concourse, was founded in 1964 and is issued monthly during term time. It is editorially independent of both the university and the students’ union.
