175 Celebrations

Coventry and proud since 1843


Coventry University is celebrating 175 years of providing education in the city!

From our origins as the Coventry School of Design in 1843 we have existed in various forms over the decades but have never changed from being a place of learning in the city, for the city.

We want everyone to join us as we mark how our institution was founded by industrialists and entrepreneurs and celebrate how that spirit endures today.
