Campus facilities

A countrywide poll recently voted Warwick the best university campus in the UK. The Warwick campus has everything you need for easy living – shops (including a supermarket), banks, launderettes, a hairdressing salon, travel agent, cafes, restaurants and bars. Most weekdays, there's an indoor market in the Students' Union.

You can swim before lectures in the Sports Centre or work out in the Fitness Room. There's great entertainment seven nights a week in the Students' Union and you can take in a play or a concert at the Arts Centre or catch up on the latest releases at the cinema.

With over 20% of the Warwick student population coming from over 120 different countries, the Warwick campus is truly an international environment. Studying and living alongside students of different nationalities creates a unique learning experience.
