My Favourite Spots on Coventry Campus!

By ResidenceLifeAssistant 29 Apr 2024

If you're a current student at Coventry University, or are hoping to join very soon - you may have heard about a few places on Campus that you can study or hang around with your friends at, but there are plenty of places you may not know about that you can visit.  Here are a selection of my favourite places on Coventry Campus.

Lanchester Library

Lanchester Library is a great place to go if you have lots of deadlines approaching, or just feel the need to get out of your room!  The building has several floors, so whether you're planning on talking to others or getting your head down in some silent study, it has something for you.  There's also a cafe on the ground floor should you get peckish at any point!

If you've had enough of study, the library also holds several weekly events for your entertainment.  These can range from free nail painting to Mario Kart tournaments!  You can find all of their upcoming activities and workshops on their website, or by clicking here!


The Hub Study Areas

If you find that the library is slightly crowded, there's a place in the Hub that not many people know about.  If you head up the stairs and to the first floor, a selection of group meeting pods and bean bag areas are available.  However, if you feel that you're in need of a desk, computer or printer, there's a selection of them to the right of the YourSU space.  So if you're in need of a place to do some work and the library is too crowded, always check back here.

The Hub's first floor is also the best place in Coventry for students to quickly get some lunch.  With a great range of different food items, from pasta to fried chicken, there's something for everyone.  If you would rather get yourself a nice hot drink, there is a Costa Coffee directly underneath on the ground floor.


CU Sports Centre

If you're looking to get into shape or just have a simple workout, the CU Sports Centre is the best value gym for students of Coventry University!  With offers available at the start of each semester, you can utilise an extensive range of equipment for all skill levels, alongside taking part in various classes (such as Zumba) and being able to book rooms for private games (such as Basketball and 5-a-side Football).


A 3-month full access membership to the CU Sports Centre costs £90, and for £170 you can get yourself a full 12-month entry pass.  Alternatively, passes for gym-only and recreation-only are also available.  You can find out more about the centre and their membership options on their website, or by clicking here!
