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.

We've also put together some handy facilities tables outlining exactly what you get in each accommodation - whether it includes a games console or TV package, right down to the bin bags! There's one for Undergraduate and one for Postgraduate accommodation.


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

Residence Life

The Residence Life ('ResLife' for short) programme is all about promoting a strong community spirit within the halls, by holding social and sporting events like pumpkin carving for Hallowe'en, ice skating, table football competitions and much more. It's a great way to get involved and meet some new friends.


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. Our brand new Bishopgate hall has all of these, plus its own on-site gym!


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.

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.

Code of Practice

All our University Owned and Managed accommodations are accredited by the Universities UK Code of Practice for accommodation. For more information, please visit the Universities UK website.
