General Election 2017 - where to vote

There are polling stations in The Oculus for students resident on campus (see below).
If you live off campus, find out more about how to vote in person – and how to find your polling station.

If you wish to vote by post at your home address you must return your postal vote to your home electoral services team as per the instructions with the postal vote. A postal vote for another constituency cannot be counted on the day in a polling station for a different location.

8 June

Polling stations are both in the Oculus:
Students resident on the Coventry side of campus = OC0.01
Students resident on the Warwickshire side = OC1.08
