Coventry is a popular choice of location amongst students who further their studies in the Midlands, and was rated the third-happiest university city in the UK in 2017, in a Sodexo survey.

The Union Leamington, a new student accommodation based just 20 minutes away from Coventry University, is situated next to the stunning Grand Union Canal. A 187-bed, purpose-built property, it gives residents the chance to live in an idyllic backdrop, away from traditional residential areas.

It is less than a mile from Leamington Railway Station, with convenient transport links to and from local education providers.

LIVING IN Coventry

With so much for students to see and do in the city, it is little wonder Coventry scored so highly in the Sodexo poll. You can combine a stroll through War Memorial Park or Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve with a visit to the old ruins of Coventry Cathedral.

More than a quarter of the area’s retail stores can be found in Lower Precinct Shopping Centre, which can be easily accessed through the local transport links.

If a big night out is on the cards, there are plenty of options on the table, not least Catch Twenty Two Club Lounge for a proper dance, and Twisted Barrell Ale Brewery Tap House for a gentler pace and selection of real ales.
