Coventry University

Coventry University is a public research university in the city of Coventry, England. The university was formerly known as Lanchester Polytechnic until 1987, and Coventry Polytechnic until it was awarded university status in 1992. It is part of the wider Coventry University Group.

It has two principal campuses: one in the center of Coventry where the majority of its operations are located, and one in central London which focuses on business and management courses. The university group also runs offshoot higher education institutions in Coventry (next door to its main campus), Scarborough, North Yorkshire, and East London, each of which markets itself as being an “alternative to mainstream higher education”.

for International Students

  • The college suggests that all new international students apply to live in college provided accommodations as this is a decent approach to meet individuals and incorporate rapidly into college life in another nation.
  • College-owned accommodation for Coventry University understudies incorporates self-catered choices in a student village environment or rooms in catered halls. Subject to accessibility, first-year understudies can pick the choice most appropriate to their financial plan and necessities. Most first-year accommodation is on or near the college’s downtown area grounds, so it’s a short stroll to showing structures and other essentials, for example, the library, sports center, and the student support services and social facilities at TheHub.
  • Lease for college claimed settlement regularly incorporates service bills and substance protection, making it less demanding for students to deal with their funds.
  • Students at Coventry University London have various accommodation options close to campus. Halls of residence include studio and en-suite room options, with either private or shared communal facilities. The university also has a partnership with the University of London Housing Services which assists students looking for private housing options.
  • First-year students at CU Scarborough also have a number of local accommodation options, all within walking distance of the campus, town center and beach.


Living in Conventry

A prosperous medieval town, modern Coventry’s success was based on motor manufacture and engineering. The Phoenix Initiative, a multi-million-pound scheme, has revitalized an area of the city with a series of public squares and gardens alongside cafés, bars, and shops. Town-gown relations are generally relaxed, and entertainment is in plentiful supply. Students from the two universities rarely cross paths. Coventry’s students make the most of the city center, which complements their own sports center and students’ union.
