Accommodation

This page contains details of various types and sources of accommodation for visitors to the Magnetic Resonance Centre at the University of Warwick. As usual, we cannot guarantee the availability or quality but we will be very happy to help you to try find what you need.

Accommodation on campus

The University has a large number of rooms available in its conference accommodation. Cheaper rooms are available outside of term time in the undergraduate student residences.

Warwick Conferences can be contacted if you require a room in the conference accommodation buildings. These rooms have en-suite bathrooms and breakfast is available for an additional fee. Special deals are sometimes available for these rooms, but these vary with time so please ask them.

Warwick Accommodation can arrange for accommodation in the student residences outside of the term time and for longer term accommodation, such as staff flats. They now have a limited number of en-suite rooms available for medium-length stays (2 to 4 weeks) available in the postgraduate student halls (en-suite and of quite high standard; cooking facilities are provided). They may require that a member of our university confirms your relationship to us.

Accommodation off campus

The University is located at the edge of Coventry and a short distance from Kenilworth (a long walk but a short drive; home to Kenilworth Castle). It is also easily accessible from Leamington (officially 'Royal Leamington Spa') by car and public transport.

Information about guest houses (bed and breakfast), hotels and local areas can be found through the University's Local Information web page. Below is a non-exhaustive list of some accommodation with which we are familiar, plus some useful links.

The Centre for Translation and Comparative Cultural Studies at the University keeps a very useful list of accommodation.
