City centre is very close to the university, so can always pop in if need too. Loads of places out to eat and bus services are everywhere. And if you ever want to go else where, Birmingham is only a 20 minute journey on a train or can get bus!

Nights Out

Coventry has a few nightclubs to choose from: Kasbah, JJ’s, Scholars, Catch 22 and The Empire which doubles up as a live music and comedy show venue. Coventry also has lots of student-friendly bars and pubs. Popular picks are The Phoenix, which is right near the Students’ Union and campus buildings, and The Quids Inn, which is aimed at students with budget-friendly prices for food and drinks.

Public Transport

For Coventry University students, the campus is right in the heart of the city so you won’t need to use public transport if you live in halls as a fresher as they’re all within 15 minutes walk of campus.

Popular accommodation areas for returning students are Bishopsgate Green, Hillfields, Barras Heath, Lower Coundon/Radford and Stoke/Binley. Earlsdon is a very popular areas for students at both universities. Canley is also a desirable location for Warwick students as it’s so close to campus.

Coventry has an extensive and reliable bus network if you live slightly further away from campus or want to pop into the city centre. If you’re planning to use the bus a lot, consider a student bus pass to save a few quid.

Coventry is very centrally located with the UK and benefits from excellent transport links further afield by rail or coach. Birmingham is just 20 minutes by train and London is 1 hour.

Eating Out

Shopping


Very student orientated city, food shopping a bit expensive if you don't want to do it online as only sainsburys is close by without a car but I love it here! Plenty of shops in west orchards and good night life, something going on most days of the week!

Cultural Guide

Coventry is the UK’s City of Culture 2021 so now is the perfect time to be exploring Coventry’s history and culture. Expect a lot of events to happen between May 2021 and May 2022 but before then, here are a few ideas of places to explore.

 

Image Credit

Museums

Coventry Cathedral isn’t technically a museum, but we suggest you take some time out to visit it. Visit the garden of remembrance, inside the shell of the once impressive and grand cathedral which was heavily bombed in World War II. The rebuilt cathedral next door is a spacious and airy space and an architectural gem. Coventry Music Museum and the 2-Tone Village is an interactive music museum explores Coventry’s music in recent times with fun exhibits, loads of memorabilia and knowledgeable and passionate staff.

 

Image Credit

Theatre

The Belgrade Theatre puts on a variety of live performances, including contemporary theatre and dance shows. A stripped-back approach to theatre, the Shop Front Theatre used to be a fish and chip shop, it now hosts regular plays for about 50 people. The Albany Theatre put on touring shows in its beautiful art-deco building. Warwick Arts Centre on the University of Warwick campus is also a hub for the arts with a concert hall, theatre, gallery and cinema. Criterion Theatre, a cosy amateur theatre based in Earlsdon, completes our list.

Music

Coventry is a regular stop-off for touring bands and gigs so you can expect to see lots of mainstream bands and artists playing at the The Ricoh Arena. The Empire, recently relocated into a bigger space, hosts DJ and club nights as well as live music.
The Kasbah is a prominent feature in Coventry’s nightlife, hosting live music and club nights.

Coventry has loads of busses so public transport is available anywhere in the city. Plus close to Birmingham new street where you can then get anywhere in the country fairly quickly. Coventry is a very cheap city to live in, but I think that’s partly because of its socioeconomic difficulties and because of thah although it’s cheaper the people are not the most friendly. Half decent night out, the student nights are always busy and good fun, drinks are very cheap I have been out in a full night out and only spent £10-£15 some nights. read more

Everything is in walking distance so it's easy to get around without a car. Loads of shops. Cathedral grounds are really pretty. Lots of good places to eat out independent and chain. There is a lot of good Chinese restaurants, and quite a few Italian restaurants too. read more

Cons?
The city isn't all that exciting. There is not always something going on, but the city is what you make of it. The city could have more cultural events and festivals. There are not many clubs or bars. The clubs they have are quite good depending on what nights you go out, but after you have been to them a lot they do get a bit boring.
