Living at Warwick
When it comes to housing preferences, we know that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we have a wide variety of options to ensure you feel at home.
Living off campus enables you to enjoy independent living and experience being part of the local community, which is why many of our postgraduates live off-campus in Coventry City Centre or in nearby towns.
Warwick Accommodation is the University’s dedicated accommodation department. They currently manage a small amount of rooms in off campus university managed properties that may be available for you to rent, subject to availability. For the most up to date information about the options that Warwick Accommodation have for you, see here.
Warwick Accommodation works closely with the SU Advice Centre to provide you with your options and offer any guidance/support you need in your housing search.
There are excellent transport links to and from campus by bus. There are express bus services from campus to Coventry train station and the city centre. At peak times, buses run up to every 10 minutes and there are also services operating late into the evening. On some routes to Leamington and Coventry, you’ll enjoy free on-board Wi-Fi. Purchasing a bus pass online will give you discounted travel throughout the term, so you can get to and from campus economically.
Alternatively, you can rent a property off campus through a private landlord or letting agency. Our Students’ Union Advice Team can provide information about private rentals, including where to look, what to look for, and guidance on budgeting and checking tenancy agreements.
Our campus accommodation includes some separate postgraduate areas as well as a limited number of couple and family residences. All are furnished and maintained to a high standard, and located within a 20-minute walk of the main campus buildings. All rooms are single-occupancy, so you won’t have to share a room.
I live in a house in Earlsdon (Coventry), which I share with three other students, all of different nationalities: British, Swedish and Chinese. This has given me a great chance to meet some new people and experience different cultures.
