"It's okay, I think the nightlife in other areas is better but the pubs are quite nice."
"The students' union puts on a few different kinds of nights out in the club space it runs, but there are a lot of options in the nearby town of Leamington Spa as well as Coventry."
"We have a good SU on campus and lots of nights out with societies and clubs for all years. We have good links to clubs and bars in Leamington and Coventry, but also Birmingham. There's a wide range of options that vary in style, price and location etc. For example, if you like pop music, POP night on campus is great, but if you are more into alternative then Boots and Cats in Leamington might be better. There are also activities like fancy dress parties, three leg bar crawls and many more."
"There is one club at uni but everyone who isn't a first year lives off campus so, if you want to go out with people from other years, you have to go to Leamington Spa, which is a 35-minute bus journey and the bus is a £4 ticket including return. The clubs in Leamington are very good and they have music from different countries. On campus, there is a cinema and a few bars and restaurants as well as some pool tables. Coventry is a 15-minute bus ride away and there are more things to do such as laser tag and bowling."
"There's not a large variety of clubs but there's something for everyone, though it can get repetitive. Transport to and from clubs is a small issue, especially given the bus service doesn't run too late. Multiple pubs are available but are not economically priced given student budgets."
"We have a great pub with a nice selection of food, a couple of nice bars and good club nights."
"Everyone tends to shoot down Warwick University nightlife. The SU nights are very limited in the amount they offer as well as the type of music. However, the surrounding area tends to offer a bit more in terms of club nights. Leamington Spa is also great if you fancy a couple of chilled drinks out in the evening for those who want to go out for a little bit without going to a club."


"Many bars and pubs. There are three main clubs and a few alternative ones in Leamington Spa. Many more in Coventry, though fewer students venture anywhere but Kasbah."
"Leamington Spa (30 minutes away by bus) offers a lot of clubs and bars to hit up on weekdays. However, there are fewer interesting alternative activities compared to what you'd find in a city."
"A good few clubs but nothing massive. There's something on most nights though."
"Plenty of options to go off-campus to go out. The UniExpress provides good options to go to the local clubs and not have to worry about transport. There are plenty of pubs available if clubs aren't your thing."
"Several good clubs and pubs both in Coventry and Leamington (Neon, Kasbah, Smack, Altoria, Duke etc) and good places in Birmingham (20-25 mins from campus)."
"Large number of night clubs, arts centres, cinemas, cafes, bars, pubs etc."
"Club nights on Mondays, Thursday and Fridays, local club nights on Saturdays. Most places are very popular with students so there's good fun."
"The city is a lot better than campus, more choice in terms of music taste and prices but still not very much. However, Leamington Spa is a small town. We also have Coventry, which has some quite good nights with coach fare included in the ticket price, which is very good."
"Multiple bars and clubs in Leamington Spa and Coventry. Kasbah in Coventry has been called one of the best clubs in the UK (who doesn't want a club that serves burgers at 3.00 am?)."
