Which supermarkets can I use?

Supermarkets near Warwick

If you are self-isolating off campus you will need to order food from a supermarket or shop online.


List of supermarkets

There are many supermarkets in Coventry, Kenilworth and Leamington Spa who offer online shopping services. The following are just some of the supermarkets that operate in the local area:


Tesco Click+Collect from Cannon Park

If you are unable to secure a home delivery slot from local supermarkets then you may like to consider the Click+Collect service from the nearby Tesco at Cannon Park. The University Delivery Service will then collect the order on your behalf.

You need to remember that the University can only collect your shopping between 10am and 4pm. If you select a slot outside of these times, we will not be able to collect the order. You need to tell us your order details at least 24 hours before your order slot. If you fail to do this, we may not be able to collect your shopping and Tesco are likely to cancel the order. If you want the University's Delivery Service to pick up a Click+Collect order, please complete the Cannon Park Click+Collect form.

Morrisons Holyhead Road, Coventry delivery

Morrisons Holyhead Road are extending their doorstep delivery service to students who are self-isolating.

  • The self-isolating service is different to the regular online deliveries, so slots are more available.
  • As a student you can contact a call centre (number below), run through your shopping list and the items will be picked locally at our Holyhead Road store.
  • If calls are made before 5pm, then they will deliver the next day.
  • There is a £2 charge for delivery to students.
  • The number to ring is 0345 611 6111 and select option 5.

If there is a lot of interest in this service, then Morrisons Holyhead Road may look into arranging delivery of all of the items in one go (for example weekly to a particular accommodation block).

Rootes Grocery Store

If you live on campus, if you are unable to order a delivery from a local supermarket and were not able to book a Tesco Click+Collect slot, you could try ordering from the campus supermarket Rootes. They have a reduced product range but are able to offer a selection of international foods and kitchen supplies. If you want more information about the items available and wish to place an order, please complete the Rootes Grocery Store order form.

The University has put arrangements in place for online ordering and delivery of groceries to your bedroom door, which will then be charged to your University account. You will be contacted by the Residential Life Team via your Warwick email address if you are eligible for this service.


Advice for ordering online

Postcode

If you are on campus, use the postcode CV4 7ES, unless you live in Staff and Family Housing in which case you will need to use CV4 7AL.

Be quick

Home delivery slots can book up quickly so you may wish to consider opening an account with a supermarket and booking a delivery slot. Please note you are likely to need to get a UK phone number to do this.

Most supermarkets allow you to book deliveries up to two weeks in advance

Minimum spend

Home delivery orders usually have a minimum spend per order (e.g. £40).This will be different for each supermarket 

Home delivery orders also have a delivery fee. This can be higher at more popular delivery times.

Editing your order

Most supermarkets allow you to edit your shopping order up to 24 hours before it is due to be delivered. There is no fee associated with this.

Substitutes

When making your order you will usually be asked if you are willing to accept substitute products. If you say “yes” then if your selected product is not available, a close substitute will be delivered instead

Non-food items

Many other essential items (such as pots and pans, bedding etc) will also be available to purchase online from these stores.

Union Pay

If you wish to use Union Pay, please be aware that many retailers do not accept this as a means of payment in the UK, including several large supermarkets.
