The larger and main campus contains halls of residence and everything to meet the student’s needs, including a large and modern library, supermarket, three banks, hair salon, post office, travel agent, chemist and large indoor and outdoor spots facilities. The on site multi venue arts complex provides social amenities such as concert hall, art gallery theatres, rehearsal rooms, cinema, restaurant, café and two bars.

The university has facilities to house over six thousand first year students. The majority of the halls of residence are found on the main campus but there are university houses in nearby Leamington Spa and Kenilworth. All the campus accommodation is self catering and mainly provides a bedroom, shared bathroom, kitchen and living area. The university ensures that there are resident tutors and a warden on all sites.


Although the university campus more or less provides everything to meet the student’s needs the city of Coventry also has a lot to offer in terms of shopping, restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs.
