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 of Warwick's property management agency, meaning we rent properties from private landlords and sub-let them to you. It will become your landlord so you have the peace of mind of dealing directly with us.
Unlike many private agencies, Warwick Accommodation charges no agency fees, no hidden fees and doesn’t even require a deposit. All our properties are regularly inspected by our property managers to make sure they meet our high standards. Find out more about off-campus accommodation for postgraduates availabe through Warwick Accommodation.
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.
