    Warwick. It's great there, and although I will probably get flamed for saying this, I think unis with a great big campus like that must have the edge. Plus, London's expensive. You can get pissed cheaper in the midlands.

    If you can find a good club in the entire city of Coventry then you deserve to be knighted. You many have more money at Warwick but you'll have to spend it in the SU for 3 or 4 years.

    i'd say soas - my brother went there and loved it, got on really well with everyone and loved the diversity. although i know a lot of people at warwick or like it there too. if you want a campus uni go for warwick, or a london one soas?!

    I believe there is a great club in Coventry. My boyfriend and all his friends have a great time there anyway, and people can actually afford it! :eek: All the clubs in the world won't help you if you can't afford to go out....and they won't make the place any friendlier either. Warwick has a great SU, and a great atmosphere.

    Warwick University, yes, Coventry University no, but I believe the question was about Warwick. Coventry the place, yes, of course.

    If they have been out (by that I mean PROPRELY been out and they are not sad and dull) in either Leeds or Manchester then I assure you they were humouring him when they said they liked it.

    Hi there, I'm from Norway and I liked Coventry (I visited in April), although Leamington is more beautiful.

    I thought most Warwick students went to Leamington and Birmingham rather than to Coventry for entertainment. I've been to Coventry and it has good and bad areas, just like every other city in the country. Leamington is much nicer though! Nobody seems to have answered the question about friendliness. I've never been to SOAS, but Warwick always seems friendly on Open Days and, being a campus university, is more likely to have a community atmosphere.

    When I visited Warwick.. I found the surrounding area and campus to be boring. Nothing to do in Leamington Spa, and Coventry was just awful.

    cov nightlife isn't great:

    Colusseum- rock club, bit dodgy.
    Ikon- where the townies go.

    There is leamington too though, thats got sugar (again, where the townies generally go).

    The union isn't too bad, just stay off the purple (snakebite and black)- I got pissed on £15 last night after drinking that stuff
