Housing services

Even though there are over 6,500 student bedrooms on campus, you would never know. Every effort has been made to build interesting buildings, and surround them with greenery.

They are safe, secure, friendly, and a great way to make studying easy. Gas, electricity, water, insurance, basic cleaning and a high speed internet connection are included in the rent and all residences are furnished and maintained to a high standard. All have resident staff ensuring everything runs smoothly and looking after students' welfare.

However, we know that staying on campus isn't for everyone; there's great value housing in nearby Coventry, Kenilworth, and Leamington Spa, with excellent transport links to the university.

Library services

Spread over five floors, the University of Warwick Library houses 1.2 million printed volumes and 13 kilometres of archives.

Over 30,000 electronic journals are currently received and more than 56,000 electronic books. As well as the materials, the Library houses a variety of study environments, enabling group and private study.
