Student Life in Coventry
Coventry is a student city that's easy to get to and easy to get around. We're only an hour from London by train and 20 minutes from Birmingham. There's plenty to do in Coventry as a student, whether you're into music, sport, art or fashion and our city centre campus puts you right at the heart of the action. In Coventry you will find everything you would expect from a vibrant ultra-modern city and, because of the university’s city centre location, everything is within walking distance. There are cinemas, theatres, art galleries and an ice-rink, tenpin bowling, restaurants, cafés and bars to suit all tastes and cultures. There is an excellent shopping centre and a traditional indoor market. A short bus ride away is the Ricoh Arena, home to the Coventry City Football Club and Wasps Rugby Club, which was one of the 2012 Olympic venues. The Ricoh Arena is also one of the UK’s foremost concert venues, recently hosting among others Rihanna, Take That, Coldplay, Kings of Leon and Oasis.
