Coventry University has a long tradition as a provider of education. Our roots go as far back as Coventry College of Design in 1843. It was in 1970 that Coventry College of Art amalgamated with Lanchester College of Technology and Rugby College of Engineering Technology.
Our students benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in all academic disciplines including health, design and engineering laboratories, performing arts studios and computing centres. We have been chosen to host three national Centres of Excellence in Teaching and Learning which has enabled us to invest substantial sums of money in health, design and mathematics.
As an ambitious and innovative university, our research makes tangible difference to the way we live. Coventry University is already known for delivering research that makes a significant contribution to a number of global challenges.
Our research centres focus on a range of real world issues including sustainability, disease prevention and innovative engineering. Our new strategy will build on these successes, strengthen our position as an innovative university and will enable us to apply fresh and original approaches to key research challenges.

Facilities for students include:
Whilst studying in Coventry, all students need to register with a medical doctor (GP/General Practitioner) as soon as possible, to ensure they receive adequate healthcare.
The Medical Centre hold special sessions during induction week to complete medical registration quickly and efficiently. Registration is easy and can be completed online.
On campus, TheHub is the centre of student life: it is the place to gather, grab a coffee with friends, have a meal, see a band in the SU, or just hang out. In short – it’s TheHub of campus life.
There is also the University’s Sports Centre just across from TheHub, and the Westwood Heath Sports facilities with floodlit AstroTurf and grass pitches for football, hockey, rugby and cricket.
There are nearly 100 clubs and societies for you to join – a great way to make new friends. We realise that many of you will need to take a part-time job while you are at University, so we even have our own on campus recruitment agency: thefutureworks.

CUSU is also the headquarters to the university's 80 or so clubs and societies and can provide free and confidential advice and support to students on a range of issues such as finance, housing and employment.
I am having a wonderful experience. Friendly atmosphere and good faculty
I have been quite happy to have find some direction when I wanted to study at postgraduate level and complete a course at master level. I have received a lot of support from the coach at the University and also felt supported during the time of COVID 19 to find other department within the University to continue with the course.
It was not what I expected in terms of curriculum but it's still a great university
