Students in the community
There are lots of opportunities for our students to positively contribute to life in Coventry, and to develop their community leadership skills.
These range from volunteering locally with the Students’ Union right through to setting up an international social enterprise.
We’re always looking for stories of how our students are positively making a difference. If you have any, please get in touch.

Case Study: Gen2Gen
Gen2Gen is an ICT support project that brings Coventry University Students together with the local community to help them with their digital devices, get online and explore the web. Gen2Gen volunteers provide one-to-one ICT help, from smartphone functionality, to advice on how to use Facebook for members of the public who visit Central, Earlsdon & Stoke Libraries.
