The University was started in the year 1949 at the proposal of an Oxford don, A.D. Lindsay. The University was built on the land purchased from the Sneyd family.

In the year 1962 the official name of the University was changed to University of Keele from the prior name University Colleage of North Staffordshire. The new name was derived from the village of Keele, which is located right next to the University campus.
