    This is a great website:

    Says it should take you about 48minutes to Warwick uni by walking and bus number 801.

    I was in Earlsdon in Coventry, it took about 15 mins with minimal traffic to get to campus, not sure how far that is from your place, try google maps.
    The buses are quite reliable time-wise, BUT if the bus gets too full (ie at rush hour times) then they don't always stop and just drive past...so you have to go in much earlier.

    If you get a place with your boyfriend only, you risk missing out on university life (unless he is a student there too I suppose!), as yoy might just hang with each other and not get involved with anyone else.

    I would recommend campus accom though if you can get it, because it's more fun and makes life easier. In my opinion.
