Located adjacent to the city’s spectacular cathedral, Coventry University
enjoys a prime location in the heart of the city centre. The university also has a London campus; however, the majority of its nearly 30,000 strong student population are based in Coventry.
Its central location means the campus is easily accessible via both private and public transport, be it by rail, bus, bike or car. So whether you’re commuting to the university on a daily basis, or travelling to and from Coventry during holidays or weekends, there are plenty of cheap transport options to explore.
How to get to Coventry University
The campus consists of several buildings spread across 33 city centre acres, all within half a mile of Coventry’s main railway station where you can catch both regional and national train services. You can find more details about getting to and from the station here
Walking from the station to campus will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes, whilst a number of city centre bus routes are also on hand to speed up your journey. The following services apply: 8/8A/9/9A/85/585/X30
If you intend on commuting by bicycle, then rest assured there is a secure car park on campus where bikes can be stored, whilst a number of cycle routes offer safe passage to and from campus and are generally a great way to explore the city of Coventry
Commuting from out of town? Coventry is easily accessible by road, with both the M45 and M6 running into the city from the main M1 motorway. The campus post code is CV1 5FB – pop it into your sat nav to avoid any wrong turns upon approach.
Please note, however, that car parking on campus is limited – so why not reduce congestion by arranging a car share with fellow students or colleagues? It’s a great way to cut the cost of fuel and parking permits, whilst enjoying some company during your commute.
How to get to Coventry University’s London Campus
The university’s London campus is located in the heart of the capital’s financial district and is home to a large number of international students.
Liverpool Street station is just a stone’s throw away from campus and offers convenient rail access to the rest of the city’s major train stations, as well as Stansted Airport. The underground station, meanwhile, makes it easy to navigate the capital’s underground networks.
The campus post code is E1 7JF for those looking to drive; however, parking is limited.
