4. A great student experience

At Coventry, we aim to do everything we can to help you reach your full academic potential, but also to provide a real sense of belonging. We take pride in providing a solid foundation of academic and welfare student support to help you have a good student experience. You’ll find social spaces across all our buildings, especially in TheHub, the centre of student campus life. Here, you’ll find a cinema, cafés and restaurants and our student support services, making it a fantastic space for work and play.


5. Live in a vibrant city

Coventry has a rich history and diverse population, a vibrant, affordable home away from home.

And with most first-year student accommodation either on or very close to campus, you will never be far from where you want to go.
