Since its first incarnation as the Coventry College of Design back in 1843, the Midlands-based institution has had a few revamps over the years. There are currently over 22,000 students attending the university, 85 per cent of whom are undergraduates.
Health and nursing degrees are amongst the most popular courses at Coventry. Its engineering courses are also a huge draw, especially now that the courses are housed in the brand new Engineering and Computing Building.
Coventry currently occupies a purpose-built campus in Coventry City Centre adjacent to Coventry Cathedral and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum. It occupies a mix of new purpose-built buildings, converted structures, and those inherited from its predecessor institutions. The centrepiece of the campus is The Hub, an award-winning building which opened in August 2011. The Hub is the home of the Coventry University Students’ Union, other student support services, a bar and nightclub, and a food hall and food outlets catered by Compass Group. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
Coventry University's London campus was opened in 2010 as part of a trend seen by a number of different British universities, where a campus in London was set up with a predominately international student body to build the universities' international reputation. The campus operates out of East India House in the London borough of Tower Hamlets, almost 100 miles southeast of Coventry. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
