Estates & Development

Energy & Environment

The Estates and Development Directorate is responsible for the management of the campus estate, including buildings and grounds, in line with the University’s Environmental Policy.

Implementation of the Environmental and Energy Policy supports the University Sustainability Strategy that is overseen by the Environment and Sustainability Steering Group (ESSG), chaired by the Univesity’s Deputy Vice Chanchellor.

In order to manage our activities, we have implemented an accredited Environmental Management System (Acorn Standard-BS 8555) which provides a framework for managing our environmental impact and providing continual improvement.

Transport and travel

The University Travel Plan aims to reduce the number of single occupied car journeys to campus and increase the use of sustainable travel:


Many staff and students cycle from home to Keele University campus. The campus has plenty of cycle racks, and there is plenty of help and support on campus- we even have a free puncture repair kit than you can use!

Staff can take advantage of the Cycle2work scheme to hire a bicycle on a long term basis through contributions made directly from their salary.

Keele is launching a new car sharing scheme in March/April 2014. The Keele University Car Share Scheme is a simple, cost effective and environmentally friendly way to travel to and from work. The scheme is designed to suit both regular and occasional car sharers and there is a simple and secure way to find people living in your area. Car sharers benefit from reduced permit and travel costs, and will be able to utilize a network of conveniently located car sharing parking spaces around campus, reserved only for car sharers.

Please read the following information to find out everything you need to know about this scheme: Car Share Info. If you would like to apply for either a ‘regular’ or ‘occasional’ car sharing permit, please email Nigel Manning ( to register your interest.

Find potential staff car sharers here.

Visitor Accommodation

If your department has a short term visitor we can help with accommodation.  We have a range of room options depending on the duration of their visit to the University (subject to availability).

Please check availability with us before making final arrangements, booking flights, etc.  We try our best to meet all accommodation requests but it these fall outside or continue beyond normal 1st or 2nd semester dates it can be difficult to guarantee that rooms will be available.

All properties come with a welcome guide that includes information on the local area, map and contact details.
