Coventry University

Clubs and social environment

Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.


"Sports and societies are great, but can get expensive depending on what you do. There are lots of opportunities to take part in running clubs and learn life skills. The uni is great in terms of quality of teaching and support, however, the nightlife can be dull unless you are willing to go to Birmingham. If you want a less intimidating city with everything you need in one place, this is perfect because you can venture out to other places easily if you want to. The team spirit at Coventry University is amazing and it feels great to be a part of it."
"There are a lot of societies available to suit everyone's needs from languages to financial trading etc."
"The sports clubs here are good."
"To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how many social activities the university had to offer. There are more than 40 sports clubs and probably even more societies (there is even a Pokémon society)."


"There's a large range of sports clubs to join but a lack of societies if you do not have any specific interests."
"Lots of sports clubs and there's always a great atmosphere at varsity events."
"Coventry is a good location for students to save money on buses and taxis. Although it doesn't have a brilliant nightlife, the pubs and clubs that are there are good and have a student atmosphere. The library is brilliant and the student accommodation is pretty good."
"The city is full of students and there is always something to do. There are plenty of sports societies and every year there is a Varsity against Warwick, it's really exciting."
"There are lots of sports and societies, a lot more than the usual clubs you might think of. It's definitely worth taking a look at the variety."
"The university has lots of stuff like a gym, sports clubs and swimming pool etc. Students are welcome to involve themselves in any of the other activities."
"Coventry University has a wide array of sports clubs and societies. During freshers' week there is a freshers' fair where there are stands with representatives from each group, which means you can find out more and sign up to whatever you may be interested in. This is one of the best ways to meet people and make friends."
"There are a wide variety of clubs, sports and non-sporting events."
"A wide array of societies and sports clubs. A good social environment with many places to relax and get drinks."
"There's a student-only sports centre, a city centre leisure centre (soon to be rebuilt), student centre for any course or uni accommodation issues, gallery and a Cathedral heritage site. There's also an ice skating rink and a cinema just across the city centre."
