Deciding where you live, is the next most important decision after choosing your university and course, as where you live will determine your living environment and who your flatmates are. Most students decide between living in university-managed accommodation and private student accommodation, but some are lucky enough to already live close to the university and can commute from home.
Coventry University has a range of university-managed accommodation available, ranging in prices and distance to the main campus. Students can choose whether they want catered or self-catered accommodation, a 39, 43, or 50-week contract, an ensuite or shared bathroom. It’s best to look at all the accommodation individually to make sure you are making the best decision.
If you have any questions about the accommodation whilst you’re deciding or even after you move in, you can get in touch with the accommodation team by emailing CULCaccommodation@coventry.ac.uk or by calling them on 0207 247 3666.
