Warwick Life

The University of Warwick opened in 1965 to 450 undergraduates, who were accommodated in a handful of buildings surrounded by farmland. Over 50 years on, the student population has increased to over 25,000, and the campus has expanded beyond recognition.

‘Warwick Life’ the latest exhibition at the MRC looks at the origins of the University and how it has changed, with a wide range of photographs, maps and documents on display.
