Campus and Accommodation
University of Warwick Campus
Warwick has a world-class campus with outstanding teaching and learning spaces, a 24 hour library, Arts centre and cinema, sports centre, restaurants and bars, and many green spaces including lakes, woodland and open fields. On your first full day we will take you on a tour of the campus to help you familiarise yourself.
The University of Warwick is right in the centre of England, easy to reach by rail, car or plane from all parts of the UK and abroad. Ideally located on the border of the West Midlands and Warwickshire, providing easy access to the major cities of Coventry and Birmingham, and the beautiful historic towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Kenilworth and Royal Leamington Spa.
The campus is located three miles to the south west of Coventry City centre and is set in nearly 300 hectares of natural countryside with lakes, woods and beautifully tended gardens in which you can relax and escape from the buzz of campus.
If you feel like a change of scene altogether there are a variety of interesting places nearby, from Birmingham's busy shopping and entertainment areas to the cultural heritage of Stratford, home to the Royal Shakespeare Company. The nearest airport is Birmingham International but Coventry is also only 1 hour away from London Euston Train Station.
