Student Life

  • The campus is home to students and staff from all over the world. Safe, inclusive and cosmopolitan, it offers everything students could need close at hand, including shops, banks, bars, cafés, restaurants, and sports, health and worship facilities.
  • The university is located in Coventry, which is the base for many students living off campus. It's a city of contradictions, with modern high street shops, restaurants, nightclubs and bars, within a five-minute walk of medieval monuments.
  • Many students also live in nearby Leamington Spa, which is just a bus ride away. It's smaller than Coventry but still lively with plenty of bars, cafés and shops to explore. And for culture, history and heritage, nearby Kenilworth, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon are well worth a visit.

Culture and Nightlife

  • On campus, students can enjoy a big night out in The Copper Rooms and the Terrace Bar, with regular club nights; karaoke and open-mic nights at the Dirty Duck, or chill out in the vintage coffee shop, Curiositea. Film fans can head to the cinema at Warwick Arts Centre or join Warwick Student Cinema society, which screens around 120 movies every year.
  • Outdoor campus spaces are the perfect setting for cultural celebrations, artistic displays and performances, and home to the Big Screen which shows films, theatrical performances and major sporting events throughout the year.
  • Students can also venture off campus to sample the nightlife in Coventry and Leamington Spa or enjoy their favourite bands at Coventry's Ricoh Arena. The arena is also home to sporting teams Wasps rugby union and Coventry City football club.
  • Visitor attractions in the area include Warwick Castle and nearby Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace and home to the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Company.
  • For shops, students can head to Birmingham's Bullring and Grand Central shopping centres.


  • The university is close to major road, rail and air links.
  • There are bus stops across the campus, with frequent bus services to from Coventry, Kenilworth and Leamington Spa. National coach services also operate close to the campus.
