The Advantages

The Advantages

There is a wide variety of student accommodation in Coventry, with a choice of University owned and managed properties, and partner halls.

We would strongly recommend all first year students to live in University accommodation to meet new friends and to rapidly integrate into university life. International students often choose to stay in University accommodation rather than taking on the additional responsibilities of being a private tenant.


All our accommodation is within walking distance of the University, social scene, and transport network.


We have a wide choice of ensuite and shared accommodation available, including self-catered and catered properties, in cluster flats or self contained studios.

All Inclusive

All our University owned and managed properties include as standard:


  • Utility Bills
  • WiFi internet
  • Contents insurance
  • Free membership at the University Gym
  • Dedicated Residence Officer

A Choice of Payments

There are a variety of payment plans available including direct debit, recurring debit/credit card payment or full payment upfront. The University owned and managed property payment instalments dates are timed to coincide with the Student Loans instalments, making managing your accommodation fees simple and easy.


Students can enjoy the social aspect of living in University owned halls with dedicated social spaces, including Sky TV, pool tables and sofas. There are also study spaces available for group work, featuring TV screens for connecting your laptop.


All our University owned properties are served by the University's Protection Service, 24/7. They provide patrols of the accommodations, are available to assist in emergencies, and provide advice and guidance on how to keep yourself and your possessions safe and secure. Our halls all have access control on the entrance doors, and CCTV across the sites.

Health and Wellbeing

There is a dedicated Welfare and Disability team on hand in addition to a team of dedicated Residence Officers for those in University owned or managed accommodation.


University Accommodation is the best way to make new friends and quickly become part of the University social scene. Coventry Sport aims to promote and enhance the fitness, health and wellbeing of all students by providing a wide range of physical activities to suit all levels of fitness.
