Districts of Coventry
Earlsdon is a popular suburb in South Coventry that was once a village in its own right. Only 1.5 miles away from the University and within a mile from the Centre of Coventry. It's a mixed area popular with students, but is also home to professionals and families alike. It has a Victorian feel and the houses date from the turn of the century onwards. It has a few shops, bars and restaurants along the High Street. Properties tend to be quite reasonably priced but go quite quickly with Landlords buying them up to rent. Similarly, Chapelfields and Coundon are nearby.
Stivichall and Finham, a few miles from the University, are very nice residential areas situated on the outskirts of the City, on the favoured southside. The areas are situated quite closely together and a popular choice for families because of the excellent schools and large parks in the area. At nearby Cheylesmore there are shopping facilities and of course good access to the City Centre.
Tile Hill has very reasonable properties, its own railway station with good links to Coventry and Birmingham and well situated for the NEC. The shopping facilities are fairly limited, but are within easy reach of the facilities at Coventry and Solihull.
Eastern Green and Mount Nod are small affordable residential areas on the edge of the City and very close to the University. There are a few local shops but the bulk of the amenities are nearby in Coventry City Centre.
