Coventry: buzzing city centre
With its buzzing centre, glorious green spaces, diverse music scene and ancient heritage, Coventry is the place to live your best student life. It's ranked a Top 5 UK Student City and in the Top 50 Best University Cities in the world for good reason – every day brings new developments and opportunities, but Coventry never loses its warm welcome or sense of history.
Step out the door of your new student home from home and find yourself at the centre of all the action. Head to the Cathedral Quarter for a buzzy atmosphere and restaurants specialising in South American and Asian dishes. Earlsdon, with its indie bars and eateries, is the place to hang out at the weekend. Fargo Village is a creative hub, with vintage clothing stores, record shops and a micro brewery.
Make yourself at home in our student accommodation in Coventry and you'll be booking the best seat in the house for performance and the arts. Coventry's spot as UK City of Culture 2021 is well earned. The Belgrade Theatre puts on local plays and West End shows. Coventry Music Museum finds a place in its record collection for Coventry's famous 2-Tone and Bhangra sounds. And the Coventry Godiva Festival is the UK's biggest free family music festival.
Coventry's story is one of reinvention – from Medieval powerhouse to manufacturing highs and lows during the Industrial Revolution. It suffered in the Blitz of World War II when its famous cathedral was destroyed but reinvented itself as the centre of the British motor industry. Today the city is regenerating again and the large student community is driving its cultural diversity and urban development to create a dynamic place to live.
Coventry's central location makes it one of the most accessible places in the UK to go to university. The city is served by six motorways. It's on mainline rail routes, with frequent trains to London. Birmingham Airport is nearby. Coventry has local bus services, plus traffic free and cycle-friendly routes if you want to bring your bike.
