We understand students have worries and concerns about going to university, after all, many of you haven’t lived away from home before. But don’t worry, we’ve put together our top tips to make sure you’re fully prepped for uni. We’ve also listed frequently asked questions and answers.
Is student accommodation in Coventry available?
Yes, Coventry University has a range of accommodation available. From shared kitchens and bathrooms to en suite studio flats. You can even look for private accommodation if you’d prefer to live in a house.
How will I know where the buildings are located?
If you’re unsure of where to go for lectures on your first week… don’t worry. You can get a map of the campus from any of our buildings or just ask any of the receptionists who will point you in the right direction. If all else fails, Google Maps will help!
What if I fall behind on my work?
If you do end up falling behind on work, speak to your tutor(s) to see if there is anything they can do help you. Many of our students set themselves a study timetable and make sure they stick to it. Our advice would be to try to keep on top of things from the offset and not leave everything to the last minute.
What if I don’t make any friends?
Living in halls is a good way to make new friends, as well as attending fresher’s week where everyone else is in the same boat as you and thinking the same thing. Remember you’ll be working closely with other students in your lectures when doing presentations, so you’ll have the opportunity to make friends there too. There is also a range of groups and societies you can join.
