Undergraduate students

Many congratulations on gaining your place at Coventry University. We wish you every success during your time here.

Over the next few weeks, as you prepare to come to University, and when you arrive here, you will receive lots 
of advice and information about becoming a student.

UK students will receive an email from the university inviting you to enrol; please follow the instructions and read all the information carefully before completing your enrolment.


CU soonWhere to go on your first day

In order to ensure your arrival is as stress-free as possible please ensure that you read carefully the following guidelines for attendance on your first day. 

You will have an induction timetable of where you need to go on your first day, based on which course you are on. We'll update the website with your faculty induction timetable before your arrival date, so remember to check back. If you arrive late please report to the main reception in the relevant faculty building:

  • Faculty of Engineering and Computing – Engineering and Computing Building;
  • Faculty of Health and Life Sciences – Richard Crossman Building;
  • School of Art and Design – Graham Sutherland Building;
  • Faculty of Business Environment and Society – Jaguar Building Business Reception (first floor).

See a location map of the faculty buildings (also available as a pdf download).



Financial help

We know that coming to University can be an expensive time and, aside from accommodation and course fees, there are so many other things you need to budget for. That's why we've introduced No Hidden Extras which we feel makes it that bit easier for students at the beginning of the academic year when outgoings are high. For example, we supply all essential core texts free of charge. Follow the link for more details about what you are eligible for.

Additionally, we offer a series of scholarships (essentially free money or financial benefits) for high achieving students and you could be eligible for one! There are four undergraduate scholarships: the Sports Scholarship, the Phoenix Scholarship, the Academic Excellence Scholarship and the Engineering and Computing Excellence Scholarship. Check out our Scholarships page to see if you might be eligible. The closing date for applications is 31 August.


Other useful information

For information about when and where to collect your accommodation key, we will have details available on our Key Collection page nearer the start of term.
