Description:Keele University is situated between the towns of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, on a staggering 617 acre campus, the largest University campus in the country.Many students feel as if they are in the middle of nowhere, and you can understand why. Their feelings, however, are more to do with the fact that there is no large city nearby (the largest, Manchester, being 35 miles away. There is neither a train station, nor a National Express bus stop in Keele, although both of these amenities are available in Stoke.

Stoke also boasts the Potteries Shopping Centre housing all the major national chains. There are also two cinemas, numerous pubs, a few cheesy clubs and an excellent live music scene.
