Coventry. Your city, your university


As the fastest growing higher education institution in the UK, Coventry University now teaches one in every seven higher education students in the West Midlands. Coventry now has more than 30,000 students across its UK campuses and a total of 15,500 more worldwide.

The university is also one of the city’s biggest employers bringing skills and education to the region and helping to continue the growth of staff and student spending, job creation and graduate success.


Student spending brings in an extra 1,500 jobs to the local economy and more than £146million is spent in the city by full-time students. A further £8million is injected into the local economy from visiting family members and those visits also support a further 240 jobs.
