Social Media Hub

Welcome

Here you will find all you need to know about each of our Coventry University channels, from catching our latest videos on YouTube to Tweeting us a selfie. Our social media pages aim to keep you up to date on all the latest University news, highlight all the great things that our staff and students are up to and give you a voice of your own.

We’d love to hear from you if you have news, an event, fundraiser or sporting fixture of your own that you wouldn’t mind sharing. Just email us with all the details and where possible we’ll post your ideas through our social media channels. 

Send your event, item or anything you think we might be interested in to socialmedia.mc@coventry.ac.uk

You never know, you might just see your event featured!

Our social media team is on hand to help you and always try to get back to you as soon as possible.

How can I get involved? Follow us! And once you've done that tell us what's happening. We love it when our students inform us of fun things going on that we might've missed.

We'll always aim to share the best ones and don't forget to join in on the conversation with #CapableOfEverything.
