"There's lots of accommodation, although many of the options are expensive. We have good facilities including the library and study areas. Campus is close to the city centre so we can walk everywhere and, if it ever gets boring, Birmingham is only a 20-minute train ride away."
"We're in the heart of the city centre and a few minutes' walk from the shopping centre. There are also lots of local food places."
"Having the hub and library be accessible 24/7 was the most important facility in my opinion. The library is a good environment to concentrate on tasks and it has different floors with different noise levels to suit everyone's preferences."
"The city is a bit rubbish outside of campus. The library is very good and the newer halls are nice."
"The campus is in the centre of the city. It is near to the train station and almost all the bus routes in the city go to the university."
"We're in a good location but there's very little to do in the city. It's more of a town than a city."
"The university is in the centre of the city, which I believe is a huge plus. The facilities really appeal to me, especially the library. You can do pretty much whatever you like, from all kinds of sports to very exciting bird watching."


"Good location. Campus is okay but there's not much on offer to do there. Student accommodation is decent but the student lettings agency at the university isn't great."
"The uni is located on the edge of the city centre with student accommodation around it. It's great for students as we don't need buses etc to get around, everything is close enough to walk. There's a good mix of campus buildings and the city centre has a variety of shops."
"The uni campus is very good and uni halls are all starting to become more modern."
"The university is located in the city centre as well as almost all the facilities and accommodation. Everything is within walking distance."
"Campus is almost perfect but the city is small and still lacks entertainment for students."
"City location with not much to do but really good facilities and accommodation. I love the student hub!"
"It's in a good location and well networked with the station. Some student accommodation needs improvement but the library is of excellent quality."
"Coventry is quite compact. Everything such as the campus, the facilities and the university's student accommodation is within walking distance."
"It's a city centre campus with good facilities that are under continuous improvement."
"We're on a city campus. Most student facilities, outside of faculty schools, are based in one building: the Hub. There are no official student pubs or clubs and the university-owned accommodation was of quite poor quality. However, the Unite and Victoria Hall facilities are nice and readily available."
