If you’re reading this you have probably applied or have even been given your Hall address by now. So, what can you expect from your Hall?

Well, for a start, we have five equally amazing halls. They are Barnes, Holly Cross and The Oaks, Horwood and Lindsay, all spread across our university campus and all within a five to ten-minute walk from the main university grounds.


Halls Representatives & Resident Life Team

Each hall has several Student Hall Representatives, they will hold many Hall events throughout the year to make you feel at home. You can find all Hall Rep Events on the Keele App.

Residence Life Team is here to make your hall experience enjoyable, they work closely with the Student Resident Advisers. The Advisers will introduce themselves to you at the beginning of your academic year. They will help you and your flatmates come up with some ground rules to live by, but if you still experience any unwanted behaviour in your flat building (or nearby building) then you can give them a ring at any time and they will sort out the problem.


Bars & Social spaces

Each hall has its own social space where you can relax in. But don't worry, no matter what hall you're from, you can still attend any bar that you like. They are not exclusive.

They are a great place to eat, socialise and have fun. Have a look and enrich your university experience.

Barnes – The Sty Common Room and Barnes Bar.

Holly Cross and The Oaks – The Cross Common Room.

Horwood – KPA.

Lindsay – The Hexagon Common Room and Lindsay Café Bar.


Issues & Problems

The great thing about on-campus living is that there are no additional utility bills for you to worry about. If you ever have a problem that needs fixing and sorting out there will always be someone around to help. You can report any problems you have via the KLE (Keele Learning Environment) or the Keele University App.


Halls & Campus Walks

If you get tired of being stuck in your room all the time there are a number of walks that you can take around or near our campus. You can find them all here.

This is a great way of exploring the local area as well as getting some much-needed exercise and fresh air, which will help improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
