Study Abroad – Current Keele Students

Studying 1st Semester Abroad

  • You do not need to apply for University accommodation in January for the following academic year if you are going abroad for the first semester.
  • The Student Accommodation Office will email you during early December to check on your accommodation requirements for the second semester (whilst you are studying abroad).
  • We will do everything we can, to secure university accommodation for you, but this is subject to availability.  There is no need to panic – there are usually rooms available, but if not, there is an abundance of privately owned accommodation in the local area and the Student Accommodation Team are on hand to assist with this.  We also have our own website for private landlords.

2nd Semester Study Abroad

  • You can apply for University accommodation for your 1st semester. You should do this in January for the following academic year and we will notify you by email to tell you how to apply.
  • When you complete the on-line application you should choose 1st semester only.

Studying 1 Year Abroad

  • You do not need to apply for University accommodation if you are studying abroad for the whole year.  However if you are‌ unsure or waiting to see if Study Abroad is possible, we recommend that you go ahead and apply for University accommodation in January, whilst this is being decided.  When you receive your offer of accommodation you should speak to a member of the Student Accommodation Team about how to proceed.
  • If you are currently studying abroad, you will be emailed whilst you are there in January with details on how to apply for University accommodation for the following academic year.

Updated May 2016. Prices may change due to rising inflation but never more than 5%. Once contracts are accepted prices are fixed.

The above prices include the accommodation fee for International Orientation (20th – 24th September 2016)

Band B accommodation has a higher ratio of students sharing the kitchens and bathrooms than band A

Please note that some accommodation at Barnes hall is charged at the full-rate since disruption to many rooms will be minimal or none at all.  Specific rooms have been identified as Band C and these will be charged at the discounted rate.  In some shared flats only two out of the four rooms will be affected.
